It’s Lacking


this on-again
off-again affair
it’s all just practicing
at the grown-up table

the repetition of the immature
the relationship nostrum
of the stupid
hot-cold-over, hot-cold-over

the connection fails
time and time again
when the heads in the game
are unequipped to love properly


Thrilled to be included in the DISINTEGRATE series of Pure Haiku. Thank you so much, Freya!
