Poetry: ‘This girl is not romantic’

Photo Eva Wilson

I guess I’m not romantic

maybe that’s why no guy 

has ever given me flowers


today I saw some wedding pictures

and felt a gag


“We chose forever”

and I choose “maybe never”


I went home to cut my hair

and I’m happy the cat went out 

because I want to sleep alone.


~ my love poems are a flower that hides cool in the shade but loves the sun
