Haikus for a Vegetarian

Before you arrived,

I was vegetarian.

But when you left me,

My teeth had blood stains,

The bowels of animals.

If I were to say

That you made me kill,

That you pulled the worst from me,

I would be lying.

This was a duet,

The worst kind of harmony,

A two person job.

So please excuse me

While I brush my teeth.

It may take a whole lifetime

To forgive myself.
