Michael Acker


is said
with such ease
such nonchalance

when what’s meant
is the once beloved
the once esteemed
once revered

before the universe
decided to test
the bonds and
the bonds failed

before the tear
the rip
sometimes terse,
often sustained

a two-letter word
packed tight
like a small, thick scar
long after the slash
