NO FAIR, Melissa Allen

No fair
by Melissa Allen

I feel like any day now you’ll write a note
to say forget all that deepest regrets
etc. etc.
and while reading it I’ll be seized
no I mean literally from behind
by the hair

and it’s the one I meant to all along
it’s the one apostle they always thought
would give in someday
it’s that one buck someone saw
back when summer no fair shooting
twelve points

I mean to say you know what I mean
but since we’ve both forgotten
why not drive
out into the country where the hills
make you slightly sick riding over them
and ride, over them

Melissa Allen lives in Madison, Wisconsin. She writes mainly haiku and other micropoetry, but sometimes she gets brave and writes longer poetry.

She blogs at Red Dragonfly.
