Crust

The day we broke
up I couldn't get out
of my mind the food
stuck in the corners
of your mouth.
All I could see
was that bit of orange.
And, Christ, I thought
as you tried to convince
me to go back,
Couldn't he at least wipe
his face?

... which is why it's been stuck in my head for . . . umm . . . something like 10 years. Maybe now it'll go away.
