Breakup Grammar

Fingernails down the chalkboard
every step that we took forward

I’ve never been
so bored of drama

I won’t use a single
comma or period in
this poem just to feed it some
sense of the unknown

since I’m familiar with
all your overblown crises
sublimely becoming
my own

you’re just a fucking run-on sentence
bad grammar in search of tension
it’s like Armageddon every Thursday around
here lately and with
mass panic

expect a sinkhole to swallow
our living room

and if
that doesn’t take its toll I’ll make mountains
of our molehill to spill a final poem on
your behalf

one last wordplay dance to spare you years of
wondering if

we’ll ever stand a chance

the answer’s no
