tell me 

tell me again 

about how we met 

one more time 

before I forget 
 

I’ve lingered in your pause 

in your held breath 
 

I’ve waited in your palm 

in your collecting sweat 
 

I have been pledged 

to your knees 

for a lifetime 

it seems 
 

darling, 

please 

tell me again 

about how we met- 
 

just one more time 

before I leave 

and forget.
