When It Hurts To Think

She can’t sleep.
So she thinks.

Mid-July
Grandma’s Cherry Pie.
God’s don’t lie.
She cries.
She cries.
She cries.

Knowledge, she decides,
Is a possessive ex-boyfriend.
Why did she ever kiss the fruit?
Sometimes, she wishes she had just married ignorance.

No one tries.
By and by,
She cries.
She cries.
She cries.
