Rp Verlaine writes

After Hipster Boyfriend 
With younger men
she went straight
to the bottom 
of the bottle
its glittering vacuum
of broken glass. 
When it ran empty
her younger men
stepped around shards 
eager for her beauty
inviolate yet nihilism
does its own retouching. 
When I walk
alongside her now spare
as any change. 
These dime store
losers approach her
empty as ice wagons 
overturned by rain
with the smell of new
they ask for sex. 
She'll be a diversion
and they hers until
dull repetition 
leave her in pieces
for me to pick &
put back together.
