I have wiped 
you off the face of the 
Earth I have put a 
curse 
on you.  

This morning I didn’t play 
our tape of 
Ferron 
singing “Satin Blouse.”  

Later 
I file the lyrics 
in a folder I 
put 
under everything else on my desk.  

I have forgotten 
you already I no longer 
remember 
your name you 
no longer 
Exist!  

When I 
pass by 
the photograph 
Rebecca took of 
us with our 
arms around each other 
I look the other way.  

And I don’t think 
about you 
any 
more.
