Spaghetti knots

what was his name again

what do you tell her

 

do you say that i would fart

loudly in public

 

do you recall when i would

snore with spit pooling like

a failed birth

 

do mention that it took me

six long months to love you and only

four short years to lose that love

 

do you laugh still about how i mistook

your earrings for the rings of saturn

how the metal danced with the gravity of night

how you undressed along the slow curvature of a universe

made for this moment

between the bare space of you and i

reaching for more still

 

do you tell her that i

was self conscious about my poems

 

do you tell her that i

wasn’t that good of a writer anyways

 

do you tell her that i

would have to read a page twice

to understand if it was worth the first one

 

do you mumble

that you sometimes still

miss me

 

do you say i said stupid things

like go on

where each day is every life

and the worst thing

that has ever happened

will happen

until then

after after

it will sludge then slip then slide

to tomorrow

where another thing

terrible and huge and totally entirely unforgivably

yours yours yours

may happen

yet

 

do you let her see

our fading yet

 

do you speak about the discolouration

of blue when you went each morning

to tackle the sky

 

do you whisper my secrets

 

do you hold her hand when

remembering the first time

i grabbed yours as another drink

that would make me feel as i felt

before i felt

i needed feel a drink

 

do you say

he wasn’t much of a cook

 

do you recount

the upset stomach of your leaving

 

do you add

don’t go don’t go

i have more to say

 

do you sit in silence

with her

while i sit in silence

without
