The Only Poem I’ll Ever Post

by kurtiswiebe

Written a long time ago. A sad day in a dying relationship.

An Unfortunate Event

There is something elegant
in things left unsaid

Over hot coffee
and cast away glances

In those moments
I regret
another cup

And like strangers
we stand
as though nothing happened

I pay the bill
ten dollars isn’t sorry

We’ll talk later
after supper
this stubborn way of speaking

an apology.
