Issue 14 - Poetry (4)

I went to the spot

—stood there—

trying to remember why

I vowed never to return.


It had been so dark in my memory,

musty and in my lungs like pneumonia.

I never thought the room would be

sweet tasting ever again.


But standing there,

where it happened,

I knew it wasn’t the place

it was you.
