Three Years, Six Months, Two Days

Day 7, PAD Challenge. Prompt a "what if" poem.

what if his words were more honest,
honest, more, his words she
was honest, too, much more
than he

it goes in circles, he she, he she,
heshe, shehe, heshe, it was it
was it was
and then it was not

and that is the pity of the
thing, him raising his hands
in exasperation, herself
curdling, sour under

the sun, box of remnants shoved
into her hands, flatfooted on
a Summer sidewalk

I really like your take on What If. You have a great way with words and ways of saying things that I have not seen before. I like the sounds of shehe. :)
