Exes Hexes

she would criticize
the slope of your shoulders
you don’t stand straight
you slouch too much

I see those shoulders
and I wonder at them
wishing to ask how heavy
is the burden you carry

your eyes are polite
she stole your spark of hope
your smile is friendly
but you don’t show your teeth

she broke a lot of you
parts that you fill with whiskey
and lonely nights wishing
for someone to help you feel
