Rewind

I agreed to have coffee with my ex, then she bailed–
which is a good thing, a great thing, a g-rated thing

unlike our love in which we consecrated tongues with holy
water on the bed, on the swings, in a forest green as eternity

meaning as far as an eye can see because in any ship
you only look forward at the lush, and when it’s over,

watch it rewind, rush into what was a dream
of lilies turned a desecrated winter wither.

One thought on “Rewind

  1. I do not know whether it’s just me or if perhaps everyone else experiencing problems with your site.
    It appears like some of the text on your posts are running off the screen. Can somebody else please comment and let me know if this is happening to them too?
    This might be a problem with my web browser because I’ve had this
    happen before. Many thanks
