I always knew I’d end up divorced

divorcing a parent is a judicial process

whether you go through the court systems or not

it’s not as simple as holding a homemade funeral

burying printed out emails

and sharing a few spiteful words

painful anecdotes and reluctant admiration

for the cold, hard bitch

she still is

 

There are bureaucratics.

You have to divorce an entire community

and ask permissions

and be careful not to put anyone

in any awkward positions.
