“malefactor: a versifier’s epilogue”

her exit was a compromise
she was a disaster area
an hourglass set for the wrong time
she was an untied bra strap
her lies
constant
a blinking alarm clock stopwatch
theoretical physics to a third grader
see was calculated penmanship
always running
all exit signs
she made everything around her tremble
I loved her
enough
to never want to see her again…
