Theophilus (a poem by Chris Kirkpatrick)

For awhile
I believed you’d
Betrayed me

No,
Not for another

But the idea
I’d relished for so long
Was no longer
Accurate—

Some warped
Fun house mirror
Abstraction

Neither you, nor I
But clearly us.


Chris Kirkpatrick is the author of two books of poetry, Learning to See from the Blind and Mixed Metaphors.
