the words are funny
funny like the smell
of rotten food
or funny
like a good joke told right
something inalienable
or correct
or a way to turn
like a stomach sickening
or going from facing me
to walking away
which leaves me stunned
perhaps because
you were stunning
a breath of beauty
once lost and now
I’m shattered
(figuratively, not literally)
you retreat
which is both a giving up
and a sanctuary at last
last like the end
last like never ends
