gasp

we were lovers

some long time ago

she never refers to this

so I don’t either

thinking

perhaps she has forgotten

maybe

I was a lousy rotten lover

& there is no point

in raking cold coals

if you don’t want

to start another fire

now

she is telling me of another

who gently took her clothes off

& gasped at her beauty

I of course had never done this

but then I hold no memory

of her tenderly undressing me

& letting out any exclamation

whatsoever

either
