"Let's break up," a poem

“Let’s break up,” she said
just to rile him up.
She liked the way

If she were lucky
a tear would ski down
his cheek
dodging flags and trees
called freckles

before the big finale
(all for dramatic effect).

She folded her arms,
took a step back, and
waited. “Well?”

“Okay,” he replied.
“I never liked you much


(It's fiction, geez.)
