So It Seems

The mind forgets itself,

so big strange thoughts move in

~

and out.  You tell your wife you don’t

believe she ever wanted to be your wife.

~

Maybe, she just never wanted

to be a wife.  She just wanted

~

you.  Over the years, it seems you no longer

wanted her, but still loved a wife.  Neither of you

~

reach out to the body right next to you.  Affection is

a complicated animal making it all a broken

~

state of affairs.  You never became what you wanted

to become.  She forgot that  she kept forgetting

~

who she was for so long, and once she remembered

you already didn’t like her.
