Nineteen/in fashion

​We love like it’s in fashion, like

a relationship is on discount 

this season, like romance is

a perfume we’ve worn so

long, its smell is a part of us,

like having another half is 

no longer special- it’s muscle memory. 

And I know I shouldn’t 

say this but maybe that’s what 

we’re doing; we treat this relationship 

like a rented garment,

slipping it on when we need it,

returning it the next morning-

and I’m not sure how much 

longer this will last, because 

at the end of the night, none  

of us are thinking of each other,

we’re just thinking of our next buy.
