  You could have a big dipper   

To the man in the dive bar who I’ll always be dating by Megan Cannella

Like most times I see you,

“Every Rose Has Its Thorn”

is somehow dirging along

in the background.

We were never that subtle.

We also can’t take the hint.

This time the snotted up tissue

in my pocket is just from crying.

Still, I won’t tell my mom the worst parts

of what you’ve done to me,

Just in case I decide I love you

enough to say again.


Megan Cannella (she/her) is a Midwestern transplant currently living in Nevada. Her debut chapbook, Confrontational Crotch and Other Real Housewives Musings, is out now: You can find Megan on Twitter at @megancannella
