Date

a dive bar rendezvous with one jack russell
terrier lounging on the sticky floor
you had ordered whisky and
i studied your profile

we shot a game of pool
i couldn’t get the angles right

three people are in love with me

back at your townhouse
i marveled at how the trinkets on your desk
sat in a perfectly straight line
hardback books dust-free

you kissed my arms and
i wept

it was not because of you
