it had to be you

I sit staring out of my study window
orange greens browns golds brown pine needles everywhere
no women to be seen
my lover of 4 years nearly 5
gone to follow fishwrap
that fishwrap, the cute little screamer
gone too
and the stoic spartan warrior woman
“I don’t know how to respond to you anymore” corporate junkie 80 hr week
slave to retirement
a daughter looking at NYU graduate studies
work you do. baby.
I think of the other one, the new one, a lot still.
golden aired surprise
I wonder
I wonder
I grit my teeth
