In celebration of National Poetry Month I’ll be writing and posting a poem a day for the entirety of April. No haikus. Nothing about wheat, unless fermented. All of the poems can be found here.
He had fantasies about being left at the altar,
so when on their wedding day she married
the pharmacist instead, he felt a sense of joy.
He apologized to the priest, and hugged his mother,
went home and trimmed back the brush,
buried their secrets in the neighbour’s back yard.
She took the cat, which freed up his afternoons.
She left all the collars, and a credit card debt.
Her fathers called often, one confused and one drunk.
