Everything is okay.Mature

Kira calls me on the phone

Her voice through the pinholes is quiet

and shaking

She says He loved

another woman

Funny how a handful of words

and a mouthful of action

can burrow deep

This proves 

what we’ve suspected 

all along:

our feelings are parasites

hunching food-bloated in our brains

or our hearts

every so often severing a nerve

and always always


Everything is okay

everything is always okay

everything will always be okay

you are okay

and they gnaw on a ligament

until it



The End
