Sapphire Lie

“blue smoke on white background” by Adrien Ledoux on Unsplash
…a sham — no surprise.

you said — 
i mined the sapphires
from the lush deep
of Montana,
Yogo cornflower,
winking on my ring finger,
once yours,
now mine,
the color of 
your demon eyes.
pawnbroker’s reveal — 
blue glass,
a sham — 
no surprise.
i lay down in 
watery blue
turned brackish stream
sinking,
with the weight of you.
