36

being proven right
is rarely the satisfying venture
you believe it will be

i said it a year ago
and you’d think i would
have ceased being surprised
by betrayal

but it still cuts deep
(and deeper now, steady)

or maybe it’s merely that
picking at unhealed wounds
and rubbing salt in them
just for kicks
doesn’t feel as good
when you’re thirty-six
