A List of Excuses for Ghosting You — Sarah May

Too-ripe plums turned to mush in my purse

I took five swigs of Jack and I’m lusting after someone else

Acrylic nails makes texting a bother

It’s easier if I just disappear

On our third date, you said something sexist

I thrash in my sleep, I didn’t want to wake you

I can’t tell my brother’s hands apart from mine

There was a pile of Penguin Classics to be sorted

I was pulling on Spanks for the last day and a half

An ex asked me for coffee and I went

I don’t love you yet

My car broke down on Northwest Highway

My phone is glitching, I need to get it fixed

I’m a coward

I’m covered in stretch marks

I was afraid you’d snap me in half
