You made a
grilled cheese sandwich
in a punitive way
adding extra butter
forcing cereal down your throat
while waiting for the bread to brown

Everything was wrong
but especially you
old lady dressed much too young
pathetic and scary
the person you thought you'd
never be
heavy makeup, wrinkles showing deep

sad, so sad

You ate, and ate, and ate
emptily, remembering
the sound of doves cooing
in the garage at lunchtime that day
what did they say?

sorry, so sorry
