I bet the days look even duller through your eyes. 
I looked into them once 
and saw my reflection. 
“This rings fits not.” 
Catching the half-glances of every drunk and sullen boy 
and I’m still sleeping alone.

Where have you put yourself away to?
driving through cracked streets into cornfields,
I watched every light as they grew slim in number,
with eyes only for you,
forever.

I’ve never danced this awkwardly
without you stepping on my toes.
“It’s kind of like a divorce,” you said,
“only there was never anything to love about you
in the first place.”
