I find myself in wilderness I never thought I’d see.
Rolling hills and prickly fields in hues of brown and gray,
a place where time has not caught up to what I used to be.
The ground is strewn with mirrors that are cracked and warped and cloudy.
Looking down I see me older, undiscovered territory.

He walks with light

in step and smile.
He pets the dog
and leaves the house
with no goodbye.
She watches as
he drives away
to someone else.
She knows she
is invisible.
She pours herself
green jealous tea,

then files for divorce.

they don’t bother with their wings,
fallen angels seeking breadcrumbs
the wind left behind.
