kill it with truth

the ring you gave me years ago when

we were still in love


i lost it. i did not know i had

in the lot adjacent to the autoparts store

touch up paint spilled so i scrubbed

my hands with pumice


how we died. i cannot stand the memory the

fallout years ago

we could no more kill

it with kindness only
