yes, it’s time to forget [poetry]

the death of a daydream

the dying breath of a butterfly unborn

gossamer thoughts of you

a veneer of improbability over my aching eyes, heart

memories contrary to truth

I’m alive but not awake,

and the dawn splits in two ways

one sun is false

and the other burns my eyelids out of dream

you are not in bed with me

and you never will be again
