Aubrey - Poem by Willie Gordon Suting

I kissed her under an umbrella
as the rain lashed it
and the empty streets.
As we stood near her gate,
I took her hand
and kissed it too, and said to her “I love you”.
Then, she entered her house
and bid me Goodbye
in the silence of the night.
I said Goodnight,
and went walking back home.

It was on a busy junction
with the hot air coming from the frying pan
in a fast food joint
that I saw Aubrey,
my old love.
She lost her simplicity,
having married a rich man who taught her to be proud.
I studied her face from a distance
as she smoked her cigarette,
and saw that there were scars on her right cheekbone,
perhaps out of a fight with her husband,
for I heard from friends
that he mistreated her,
but often brought her gifts to make her forget.
