It Comes Back

[Fall-ish 2015]

It comes back
Those nights when you're leaving
Because he won't change his mind about the divorce
But he spent nights the last ten years crying over rejection

It comes back
The frustration you feel because now you're stuck on a tiny budget
And have to live on support payments and part time pay
Was felt every time he saw your Starbucks card auto reload
Even when the checking account was empty

Was every transfer from the savings account
To cover the cost of gas
Incurred because you wanted to drive
Half a mile down the road
Instead of just putting the kids on the fucking school bus?
