used to be relevant; now it’s just nostalgic 

for the fifth time this monthyou say you’re going to leave him

he calls you a cunt over the phone

then walks the three miles to your house

and kisses your mouth until the word is just

a place on your body.

i don’t know what brings broken people together

maybe damage seeks out damage

the way stains on a mattress halo into one another

the way stains on a mattress bleed into each other.
