Elliptical Love #3: If You’re Gentle

if you’re gentle

I’ll let you

rip me to pieces
petal by petal

those pretty thoughts
broken and scattered
in marvelous little pieces, more
is less

let me forget
let them know

tear me up and release
a handful

a hand letting go
let the pieces of your heart blow

torn up pieces,
drop them in the river and let them flow
float
drown

ripples in the river
as the teardrops go

go.

“no.”
