why was she inviting him

the day the invitation came
he threw it in the trash
on second thought
he pulled it out
he shouldn’t be so rash
he put it on the fridge
held on with alphabetic magnets
message-1263977_960_720.pngand wondered how she
had moved on
while he had stayed so stagnant
and why was she inviting him
it seemed a little cruel
they just broke up a week ago
she played him for a fool
he stood a while examining
the envelope, the script
the postmark from so far away
he bit his lower lip
and opened up the envelope
there now, not as upsetting,
this invitation to attend
his little sister’s wedding
