“He Said”

 

She wasn’t sure

what he meant

when he dropped

“Don’t look back”

as he kissed

her

and walked

away

not stopping

till he was

well out of

her life,

one of her

better break-ups

to date

no foul words

or thrown

beer bottles

though

she was the

one

with the mouth

and the arm

both times

but in her

defense

she was drunk

both times too

and did miss

with the bottle,

did he mean

don’t relive

the past?

Like she wants

to go back

and have him

reexamine

all her actions

again

with his own

personal

commentary

on how she

can improve

herself

at the end

of every night,

gees

we only went

out

for like a month

that’s the problem

with meeting a

guy

at a bar

they always

seem funny

and easy going

at first

can’t stop telling

you

how beautiful

you are

and how sexy

you look

walking on the

wild side of

life

dressed like

you don’t give

a damn

and liking the

attention

that comes with

that statement,

then

two weeks in

and he’s trying

to change

everything

about you

your make-up

hair

and the verbal

selections

you use to

express yourself,

that look and

language

that once made

you edgy

and avant-garde

he’s now

trying to get

you

to tone down

and box up

around his friends

“don’t look back”

she mutters

as if I want

to become his

mother,

she downs

the rest of

her beer

“he’s lucky this”

“wasn’t empty”

she jokingly

tells herself

as she starts

looking through

her closet

plotting out

what she is

going to wear

when she

goes out

clubbing tonight…
