Make up the breakup

by Zachary Green

And I don’t think you should lie to me with any nature poems
because you know you don’t think sand is beautiful
unless you are in a good mood, which you never are


That sweet spot in a relationship where y’all fit together like an old pair of shoes,

smell bad from the years of decay and sweat, and you might not like being seen in public with one another,

but hey they are always there when you get home.
