Counting Stars of February

I count the stars of February!

Alas, they align within my reach.

*

I can dunk my head in sea water,

my tears as salty as the beach.

*

My mother has shelter.

And my father is sober.

My niece is turning seven.

*

The complexities of love unravel off my pen

*

The boy that broke my heart

got friend zoned by the girl “he didn’t like”

Read that part again.

*

Taking her on the exact first date he took me to,

I wonder if at all, there was a little bit of

Déjà vu.

*

Exposing all of his unrighteousness,

since he blasted mine before.

One of the stars that aligned, was that

karma is a savage whore.

*

In the words of T-Swift,

"Karma is the cat

purring on my lap 'cause it loves me"

*

Ay yai yai, Cariño,

isn’t it so?

Karma is the poetry I write

to vandalize your ego.

*

Was it ever really fate?

A gringo who uses Spanish as

bait.

*

Before calling her Cariña, learn how to say

“Boricua”

*

I know I’ll have to repent,

filling my belly with immediate regret

regardless of your disrespect,

*

*

If charming Cupids rose garden

gave me any last glimmer of you,

I martyred it right here.

*

*

I guess Roses are dead,

And Violets are blue.

Felt salty, might delete

*

Authors Note:

A different approach to an entry to Daphsams Valentine prompt: I went with the first prompt generating: Charming Cupids Rose Garden, which unapologetically, inspired this poem. 🤌🏽🔥
