+——Cummings and Goings

 

 

‘I have a love,’ he said.

‘And I have none,’ I said.

‘I’d like to stay,’ he said.

*

‘Can’t be with you,’ he said,

‘but you’re my flame.’

I said: ‘I feel the same.’

*

‘It’s wrong,’ he said.

‘So stop,’ I said.

‘No, don’t,’ he said.

*

‘Is everything a game?’ he said.

‘That poor guy.’

I said: ‘There’s something in your eye.’

*

‘Come on,’ he said.

‘Cannot,’ I said.

‘Why not,’ he said.

*

‘You have a love,’ I said,

‘remember?’

He said: ‘You’re better.’

*

‘It’s true and sweet,’ I said,

‘the message you’re transmitting.’

He said: ‘ You’re kidding.’

*

‘I want you more,’ he said

‘but like you less.’

I said: ‘Makes perfect sense.’

*

‘Fuck you,’ he said,

‘you only wanted me for sex.’

*

‘And you,’ I said,

‘would make great friends with my ex.’
