Useful

For A & D

Last night we got drinks and she told me

how a young man of a boy

got aggressive at 17 and took it too far

and felt really bad seconds after.

She was 14 then and she’s 22 now.

Violent sex like little else

makes me aware of the blood in my face.

 

Tonight she slurred just to enough to give away

how fucked up she got moments before

I arrived in the driveway with pizza.

Some man paying for her time

and a little boy making her feel worthy

while her mom is getting kicked out;

she peed on the sidewalk and I looked away.

 

I guess it’s good

if my heartbreak

is useful

to someone.
