the caesarian section

 

“think of it like caesar’s bridges,” i say,

“one-time use,

not made to last,

cast into the rhine

the moment that

the last gaul

on the other side

had died.”

you slap my face and say

“et tu, brute?”

 

before i could

decipher what

you meant you slammed

the door and i

have wondered ever

since which one of

us used the more

ridiculous caesarian metaphor

to describe

the simple act of

parting.
