four words

It feels less than it is
It feels like a Wednesday
It feels warm and muggy
And I feel normal, a bit
thirsty

It’s bigger than it is
It’s just some vow
It’s just some utterance
Before an Almighty, and
a crowd

I feel smaller than I am
Less responsible
Less a maker of choices
Or decisions that mean it, to
walk away

I am smaller than I was
No more other half
No more two now
Just one at a laptop, writing
four words

I got divorced today.
