Lately –

Break ups happen. Happened. Happening.
And I gave away all of my books from the previous break up.
Because
I didn’t anticipate breaking up-
-again.

So
Here’s how I’m
coping
cajoling
crooning my sensitive self
to sleep:

Nailed It
Netflix
Nicole Byer-
-clutch.

High
on saying “Hi!”
to strangers
across the street
across the plexi-glass
across the many divides.

Annie’s frozen pizza
just cheese
comforted by simplicity
and salt!

My mom
sitting on the edge of the bed
listening to me
hearing me.

Texts from friends
Facetime with friends
Calls from family
Laughter-bursting memories from family.

Ultramarine
Golden Paint
Blue Blue Bright-Being
Blue.

Making noise
fluffering
futtering
fiffering.

Feeling myself smile
at the bizarre times
unexpected times
after a peak of anger
in the slope of sadness.

Sweaty and fighting.
