"Relationships Are a Death Wish" by Jennifer Skelton
I noticed his
On the 4th of July.
He was wrapped in asbestos
A handle of Abslout,
And bathing in the Buffalo River.
Let’s just be friends.
"You Could Have Stayed" by Jennifer Skelton
You could have stayed
Or 30 more minutes beckoning
My skittish cat to come to you,
Or to tell me more about the time
You hit yourself in the head with a hammer
To avoid being alone
While your ex was in the shower.
