He Dropped It


i trusted him
he smelled sweet
and musky
like a happy child

i trusted him
he smiled true
he spoke soft
he held firm

i trusted him
he kept me
from the
buzzards
and the
coyotes hanging ’round

i trusted him

but in the end

when it came down to it

when i formed an opinion

when it really counted:

i gave him a piece of my mind

and he dropped it
