A Poem for Justin Timberlake

At Family Dollar I saw a magazine
Justin Timberlake married
Jessica Biel, in Italy.
She wore pink, not even
Katie Holmes did that.
I walked away from the magazine
like
“Why her?”
I don’t know him
or her
and it’s been years
since we kissed
in my head
but still.
Her face
was calm. She looked
nice. “They look happy”,
I think and, “Well, that’s that”
and it’s funny
because
I’m letting go
and it’s Funny
The idea that you ever have
something
to let go of
other than the idea.
If a person in a magazine can
cloud up your Wednesday
imagine what a real-life person
will do.
He was really terrible in that
movie with Clint Eastwood.
And Mila Kunis.
I felt uneasy about
the sex scenes
like who does that
in bed
really?
Oh well
I still love you
is what I think, leaving
Family Dollar, empty-handed,
The parts of you I created
I will love always
