.  In another universe, who I am
gets dumped by a woman

who in another life
was Cleopatra.

Today I divine this by finding a small blackened potato
between my oven and counter,

vaguely heart-shaped, sprouting
pale arteries

of no use to me,
I think on an inexplicably dramatic

whim.
i love the idea of parallel universes.

I think what gets me most is the way this is worded, coupled with the potato. This was certainly interesting and nice to read.

I really like the cadence the line breaks create in this poem. And of course the subject matter really strikes a chord with a shameless nerd. This is definitely derseving of a DD. Congratulations! :clap:
