THE EX
(10/12/15)


she's back

only daytripping
this time

a year
and a half
removed
from her departure

trolling
for any items
that she neglected
to take
when she left
for good

she still
looks good

but he knows

far too late
unfortunately

that her looks
are the subterfuge
that distracts
from her true
intent

he lets
her carry
another armload
away

a few
more things
gone
really don't
matter

except for
the little sack
that she took
with a slice
of his soul

he really
wouldn't mind
having that
back
