Lamentations 2

by Jade Foster
You are a liar
I smell it from
all the way over
here, my tears
between your
teeth. You

lied and parted
my hair in the
doorway with
your breath
with your
I love you
struck me
as a student
with a lunchbox
like armor
against my chest.

It was gray,
the rain
smelled like
you all over
my shoulders

too small
to cover
my feet.
