Valentine’s day hearts
still hang on the salon ceiling
three days after the day
which makes no sense at all.
Each heart is cut in a different
sort of grotesque because they
know nobody will notice the rough
edges, with a solid concept as this.
That is why he will leave her through
empty inboxes, bubbles of silence
he will slowly pull the wooden floor from under her
so one day she will know with certainty that there is no more need for a second dinner plate.
