if we were both the rebound

if we were both used

& tossed away

like old toys—

are we meant to be together?

mine was joel

yours was noah

what is it with four letter names?

(though, to be fair

ours are both

four letters

as well)

i enjoyed our time together

i’m glad it was enough

that i fed you well

and for once

i’m glad

that i didn’t sleep over
