every time

Feb 16, 2024

the cat leaves
small carcasses
on the mat every time
Dave brings me flowers

my son celebrates
being an only child
every time my period
begins to flow

my ex-husband
claims yet another
foot of space every time
he enters my home

death on the doorstep
blood between my legs
territory marked
in the hall
