The Little Death, A Haibun

midsummer night
my ex-girlfriend

The moment I'm inside her, my new partner cries out, "Viens à moi, chéri! Viens à moi! Ah, tu es arrivé!" The ceiling fan makes a rhythmic hum while spinning at full speed.

we sleep back to back
a shooting star
across the window
Note: "home, baby! home, baby! Yes, you've come home!"
