Day 305 – the heartbreak of knowing

the heartbreak of knowing

You should be more clever

Say things you don’t really mean,
especially on your profile page

For the sake of fun,
the beauty of obtuse angles,
the kind kisses of levity

Like listing “Unicorn Kingdom” for
Religion
to represent your
belief in the greater possibilities
of the unknown

Or “Kindergarten Third World” for
Political Views
in homage to the
brilliance of the zillions of
kids you’ve worked with

Or when you listed
“Married”
under
Relationship Status,
I thought
it might
be there
to show
you are
“Married to the world”
or to “the cause” or to
music,
or anything,
anything,
perhaps anything
else

But you chose “Married”
to
mean
Married

It came next to the symbol
of a
heart,
without warning,
or a softer font

After our last
goodbye
and all this time,
I have no right
to complain

I should simply
point out
it wasn’t very clever

and
it makes
no sense
at all
