You killed me for 
 the better part of girl.

a forgery, 
cleansed by abruption
is my trick that
 hollowed you out.

and now the calmer part of day
distills through me,
this cavalier expels his weapons 
by your side,
I take a good long swig.

It’s lovely here without you
and your wool disguise.

It’s lovely here without you,
and even lovelier still.
