I took a couple with breakfast
I wish they'd be called ‘Memory Killers’,
As I now either eat waffles alone;
Or, what is even more pathetic,
I eat waffles alone with
An imaginary companion.
I took another one with lunch,
Hallucinating of the furniture of the air,
The earth-sky-bird patterns
Unfortunately, it had a rhythm
That took me back to
Where the symphony of love began,
Where silence was already filled
With sweet serenades.
I took a last dose with dinner,
Crossing my fingers for forgetfulness;
But, the million tiny city lights
Glistened like your freshly showered skin
That made me sorely yearn for
The way together we would
Soften our limbs, oil our joints,
Meld our hearts, coil and tuck
In each other's sweat.
