one-ninth

I asked myself, why were we
so careful with each other, and

it was because we were young
and everything was infinitely
important
to
us

, including the poetry we wrote.


I put, in parenthesis,
(If I am going to be honest,)
because
that has become a disclaimer.


Two years ago,
you were beautiful
and I was focused.
Our places may be
reversed
