A Whatsapp War
My finger is heavy with this link
that I’ve copied but not pasted
and I don’t know where to leave this thing
now that we’re not talking.
I copied it like a muscle memory
unwilling to let go of a past
where affection was carried in finger-fulls
of meme and link and obscure interests
in warmly lit Whatsapp windows.
But this link prickles on my finger now,
a sticky thing that weighs me down…
So I paste it in our old window,
and in a brief moment of respite,
watch it sit there, unsent.
