whatever happened to?

cold morning standing by the sink

looking out stirring coffee

& a sudden movement caught my eye

then a plop sound on the doormat

a fat white envelope handwritten

in a shaky spidery sloping scrawl

opening up to a long litany

list of the shitty things I did

am as an incomplete person

the biggest liar under the sun

hurter of feelings sloppy gun for hire

& reading I was waiting

for the obligatory lousy selfish lover section

& there it came towards the end

just before the bit about

how she had wasted her time on me

& I read to the end out of respect

for her hurt feelings

but there could be no point by point

long line reply

for after

whatever happened to

the once made promise

of love you forever

what could be said?
