Hour 10: Nothing Lost

We’ve lost so much together, you and I.
Innocence
Parents
A partner
We’ve lost money, time, control
the piece to that bookcase
my battered grey t-shirt
the chance to fill a womb
but rarely patience,
and never the desire to bring lips together,
whispering, “bon nuit, je t’aime”.
