Our Promise

The sun

was a golden husk.

The sky

blue

like evergreen. 

My love

was not in a rut.

My friends

were gathered around.

I won

all the preliminary rounds.

But after a faked injury, and pack

of lies, he bought

his way

into the finals.  Unfortunately,

he also bought the crowd’s sympathy.

But I stole their hearts.  By the end,

when I sank that last shot,

like our promise – not our shadow,

and he cried

foul

again,

nobody

fucking

cared.
