A very short poem about a guy who can’t get over his love for his ex-wife. (NOT ME)

One of many “4 line poems” (actually 2 lines without the formatting. lol) My attempts to convey as much as possible with few words.

This was a “Rusty Special”. I really don’t know which way he meant it. Is he calling his wife a whore and/or he just can’t get over her. But for 2 lines, it says a lot.

I paid the girl for loving
Like so many men before.
The girl I used to call my wife
Before she closed the door.
