Note Left on a Cold Pillow

tomorrow,   love,   when you realize what
a douche you’ve been and want to apologize,
think long and hard about what led us to this
and ask yourself if you’re willing to put in
the work it takes to make relationship;
are you willing to forget,    forgive    (me
and yourself and the faultful world)?     what did
we learn from heated words and anger flamed
against weakest weakness   —   each taking full
advantage of our knowledge of the other
to wound deepest   .  .  .   secrets become weapons
flung against the fear of injury    (I’ll
hurt you twice as much twice as fast as you
can hurt me)   precedent long ago set.
