broke

I pray that it’s true you broke through. For what feels like an eternity, I’ve wanted you to do better, and maybe you will. Maybe you can be more than a long coat and a puff of smoke.

rapper

Kendrick Lamar, of course, is my favorite rapper, though Ab-Soul is criminally overlooked. You asked me to give you recommendations and I did, and you liked exactly what I didn’t like. I wonder why you asked me in the first place. I wonder whether this will continue.

departure

This pop culture enthusiasm is a departure from the you I know in real time. Or have you hidden these aspects of yourself from me until now, when there’s no chance of being in the flesh?

bypass

What was in your mind when you bypassed me? She said we had a “brush,” “Maybe it’s just me, y’all had a brush.” Now it feels good to be free of you, but I keep imagining you’re in this city, that you’ll show up from some other part of the state.

lunch

Yesterday felt as if you were lunching on my heart and I didn’t even see you. I won’t see you for months. That’s fine. There’s a difference between who is wanted and who is chosen sometimes.

charge

I charge you with being better than you are. Please challenge me to be better than I am. It’s all impossible and it’s all bad, but I want what I want, honey. What do you want?

conflict

My conflict is that you’re an alcoholic. My conflict is that you’re married. My conflict is that you’re handsome. My conflict is that you have night terrors. My conflict is that I have no evidence of what’s true.

version

There are infinite versions of history, and there’s one where, when you show up under my window, we’re Antony & Cleopatra. There’s one where you stay the night. No rings.

lift

Honey, I’m greedy, lift me. I want all your desire, I want all your interest, I want none of your fur traps & cages. So if you’re drunk tomorrow coming home from the Halloween party, feel free to text me – I won’t say anything.

excluded

I wish I didn’t have to keep you excluded from my life. But it’s necessary. If I didn’t, you’d put me in a cage, parade me around to all the state fairs, show me off like that. And I’m wild, I can’t be kept. So I keep you away, even though I want to stare into your blue eyes every morning.

clarify

“Clarify our love, our love, our love,” FKA Twigs sings on “Papi Pacify.” Plays on loop in my head thinking about you, how you’re back from the tropics and have said nothing to me yet.

jealous

There’s this song, “Jealousy,” by Roy Woods, and I been listening to it a lot. It’s true about us – we’d still be together if you weren’t so jealous over me. But it’s a really good thing we’re not, because I have better things going on these days. Kthanx.
