NaPo 4/12


What dire Offence from am'rous Causes springs,

What mighty Contests rise from trivial Things . . . .

-- Alexander Pope, The Rape of the Lock, I, ll. 1- 2.

I didn't throw all your clothes out the apartment window
just because you've been carrying on with that skank Darisha;
I didn't back the truck over your DVD collection
just because you were out screwing her
while I was in the hospital giving birth to your son;
I didn't wrap your cellphone in three of his crappy diapers
just because you gave me the clap you got from her;
no, I'm finally and totally throwing your fat, lazy, sad ass out
because you gave her the same
diamondette necklace and plastic roses you gave me
for Valentine's Day.
