standing on the ledge of a building
does not wonder if it will hurt.
she wonders if you will miss her.
watching his father's car pull away
does not understand the word divorce.
he wonders what he did wrong.
with bruised thighs
does not understand that it wasn't her fault,
she only smells your breath on her cheek
who told you that you smell like rain
does not understand your empty drawer,
only that you left his ring.
and the sun still sets and rises,
why the moon
stays so far away.
