I Don’t Bury Dead Love… I Discard It!

I am ‘Disengaging’…
from the ‘Mesh’
and ‘Web’…
Fuck your ‘Closure’.
There is No ‘Mess’
to Clean-Up…
if we just Separate.
I am Looking
‘Beyond You’ now,
and Enthusiastic
… about ‘No
Longer Responding’.
New Vistas…
and Strangers
… Spring My Step.
“No Hard Feelings”
… I feel Nothing…
except, the Tension
of waiting [Eagerly]
for the Sound…
of the Starter Pistol
… ‘Away’ from you.
