unbuttered toast

a broken zipper

cold tea

a clasp

with a gap

on a necklace

that won’t close

that post it note

with that thing I wrote

that I can’t remember

that said everything

I’m tired of feeling

the persistent drip

in the kitchen sink

that no repairwoman

can fix

the rage of a million heartaches

muted & amplified

by the million and first one

hesitant rain on wednesday

pen sprinting races

then breathless

running out of ink

finishing what

reluctantly began

no one telling you

what’s right

stopped mattering

last sunday

the fortune cookie with stupid advice

snow too stubborn to melt in the presence of sun
