Rocky VIII

When that beautiful boy broke your pretty little heart
did it hurt?
Was it crushing
when he said
he wanted to see other people
– lots of other people
– any people who weren’t you?

Was it a difficult few hours
of torment
as you suffered the slings and arrows
of courageous misfortune
when he hurt your feelings
by not reciprocating yours?
Was it bad?
Were you sad?
Does this conversation make you mad?
I’m glad.
I’m happy
you finally feel a little
of what it’s like from the other end.

Maybe next time
when we talk
and I ask if you wanna see
the latest Rocky film
you’ll remember
and be a little kinder.
