I look at your body lying next to me
on a bed rumpled by passion
by love
by animal magnetism.

I remember how we met,
We drank

The softness of your faint

The gentle curves of
your neck and chest.

And I am forced to
forced to say
The five words I have
dreaded and longed
most of my

“What was your name again?”
