The First Day of Fall
(Sun Series #3)

Long Dark Night

write him notes
till you’ve run out of things to say
let him know
how you’d forgive him
(or not)

take his painting from the corner
and rip it from its frame

some long dark night
break up that frame
(out back)
set it aflame

burn the painting
burn your notes
add a splash of his favorite whiskey
and turn away

it’s time to find a new artist
with new paintings
in colors that seem newborn
in the first light of day
