For Pembroke

wear my bathrobe to pick

Lil Cobra up from school

administration asks if I’m unwell

let them believe I’m diseased

it’s more entertaining that way

.

he messaged me last night

wanted to know when 

he would see me again

I shrugged and shook my head

don’t want to hear from him, really

.

dreamt I cheated on him with another

woke up and felt guilty, sick with immorality

but every time I give him my heart

he sends back a thumbs-up emoji

makes me feel temporary

.

Holiday broke your heart, didn’t he

so you ran your car through the wash until

you couldn’t feel a single thing

and the windows sparkled with wasted water

Pembroke, I don’t know what to do with you

.

here’s advice for you to read

instead of other people’s diaries

maybe it will help erase 

some of the hurt Holiday created:

for once, put yourself first
