there were golden flakes of the croissant
he’d been eating
all across the crotch region of his jeans


i shook my head when he lifted his eyes
from his plate
he was always careless when he ate


with a quick motion of his hand
he brushed the flakes to the floor
i ended up sweeping them to the waste basket


the weary night he told me he was moving out
he left me like neglected bread crumbs
so i could piece myself together till i realized


he’d always been messy
from the start
but i was used to cleaning up after him

A little piece dedicated to my long-time readers. Inspired by a coworker discussing his croissant breakfast sandwhich.
