To my boyfriend’s wife

you carry your pain
like a machete sliced smile

a glistening kind of deadly

melody in your eyes
dreams tainted
at the root of
your hair

perhaps in another time
we would be
could be sisters

gossiping about no good shit
men

the lies they
wedding vow promise

how we loved on purpose

loving
purpose-ly

we

would have prayed
for a love claimed
love redeemed

for love

me
small breasted poet
in search of light love growth

you
think we are nothing alike

i know you
sometime ago lover

someone’s sister
daughter

i am sure your mother
sees the gospel in your smile
your father legacy in your laugh
maybe in another place
we would have been
could have been sisters

but we are here
one ego in front of the
other

your pain
cascades to the floor

broken promises drip dropped
like a fallen angel

i know that fall

a glistening kind of deadly

and you think
we are nothing alike
