haiku for elise

she came to stay but did not stay. she got yogurt with chelsea then grabbed her things and left, as if "you have a paper to write" was a sufficient excuse. so i wrote haikus through my tears.

i cannot believe
you chose grandma over me
i'm brokenhearted

much more fun and wise
(with more good food than i have)
understandable

just leave me alone
with gangsters at my window
cry myself to sleep
