The Things That Destroy Me

by Michelle Kubilis


1.
Her name slips past his lips
after they had been on mine.

2.
He says she won’t let go
but his hand is holding tight.

3.
I catch him smiling at her pictures.
“Just good memories, that’s all.”

4.
She thinks she’s better for him.
He agrees.

5.
The break-up.
An ex for an ex.

6.
Him
& her.
