Falling Out of Love


my love for him dislodges, flies off into a tree
out of reach, clinging by sixteen claws
it gleams purple-red-green amongst the leaves
metallic, mylar-exciting, it shakes its spines
regards me with heart shaped eyes
I grab at it, popping up, down on tip toes
slippery, sharp as it is, I finally grip it
try to shove it back in my gut—
it no longer fits.
