Rules for Afterwards

If you hear her name
do not turn
or shake or sweat
or show any other sign
of tremendous duress.
Do not let her get to you.
She had months for that,
why let her now?

If you see her on the street,
be polite
but keep distance.
She no longer has the right
to hold you
or hug you
or touch you
or vice versa.

Cut your heart out
and place it in a lockbox
(with a freezer unit,
if possible)
and keep it far away
from your view.
You will have no need
to see that thing
for quite some time

but when you feel the urge
to be reunited
with that heart
it is best if you still provide time
for it to thaw.
