‘Poetry’

You wanted to write poetry together.

You asked me.

And so I told you to-

Yours was a nursery rhyme

Mine too, about you.

We both joked until you left

and I riffled through the rubbish

to find yours, to feel the grooves in

the paper

made by the weight of your hand

gripped around the pen.
