Gift

Brought the wrong colour roses

Into one ear

And out of the other

Call that attentive

Those little things

Matter

In the devil’s own detail

Subjectively trivial

Important, important?

 

A litany

Of dates and times

Histories examined

And you are found wanting

What was I wearing?

The time that we first met

Caught your eye that time

How quickly you forget

Remember, remember?
