She rolled over and whispered 
"I don't love you."
Winter had taken all but one red leaf from the tree outside
I had delivered the rest to their plastic tombs
The branches were dry and fragile
Ready to pummel the cars below 
The air sat in your lung 
Maybe I expected it
I laid there faking a thought
She waited for my reply.
