I ate my breakfast with
out her this morning,
and the coffee just tasted like
we shared a quiet breakfast, and the
maple syrup on your lip
fooled me into thinking
that your kiss was something sweet.
I am stopping at
every motel we pass.
taking the bibles
from all of the nightstand drawers;
I think I’ll need them more than the
petty thieves and whores who will
call these rooms
home for the night.
there is a
five foot six inch gap
in the space next to me,
and I am choking on the excess oxygen;
I need you, to breathe.

I am a childhood toy, with my
arms broken off,
kept for so long in nostalgia;
I am your favorite song from high school,
but I don’t quite sound the same
I am a tattered souvenir
shirt from a friend,
buried deep in your closet because
it would be rude to throw me away;
I am a tarnished nickel,
green with corrosion, lost
in the dust between
your bed and the wall, and I
never was worth much to you.
