not anymore

She’s not the ish any -more
but it’s cool. Not
that she ever was
but I did think she was
was deserving of the ring  my grandmother had given me
 to place on the
4th finger left hand-
That same finger she lifted
When she couldn’t slur the word
I didn’t think was in her vocabulary
when I asked her to marry me

instead of saying yes.

The poet's broken heart doesn't seem to get in the way of his wit. I digs.
