Bankruptcy

you lost your love
it got re-possessed
cuz you couldn’t afford
the interest,the credit
the fees in the debit.
then you discovered

the quality of the lover
was far less than advertised.
unlike that Clearance
chicken fryer
bad love burns hotter
than hot sauce, grease and water
the scars sear like
tar on the heart.
the damage and pain

done in the name of 
what’s gone, unreclaimed
shows on your face
like messy tear stains

the melancholy remains
long after the love departs
and your credit report
still reflects the score 

Zero, nada
you lost yo shit

An unsettled debt
in red it says
Emotionally Bankrupt
