Happy Belated Valentines Day

Stupid Kiss
by A.E. Paulino

I texted her.
a n g r i l y.
i wanted to
see her/
its been long
since last
we've done
any seeing of
one another.
t h u r s d a y,
she wrote.
excited i wait/
and she doesn't
show at all,
t h u r s d a y.
friday, she's gone
no reply no text.
i thought she died.
she has lung
p r o b l e m s,
she could die.
I wouldn't know.
s a t u r d a y
she texts,
i'm not dead,
but she is.
she is and
she can't
c o n v i n c e
me other,
to that wise...
