I tried to open my heart to you
felt the petals stick as they struggled
like the warped bud of a sick tulip—fungal
at the root, I tried
to love you but I didn’t know how.
You tried to help me, I think
armed with harpoons and bone snares that
meant love, but only the jagged edges
registered anything with me.
I forget the good things I know were there.
We could have been good together
if the right pieces had met at the right time,
instead of crashing like icebergs, breaking into cold snow
we might have been perfect if we’d tried
a few years later.
