she lost me
in the seas where she cast her nets
hoping to catch someone to allow her those excuses
left to sink
in the false sympathy I couldn’t provide,
for I cared too much.
Her boat now drives
itself to warmer shores
that burn with a harsh frankness spiced with lust
that don’t threaten her with
the need to grow up.
