Reminders
         from Love is Cruel

You left several strands
of hair
aaascattered across my
sheets

you left your yellow
toothbrush
aaaon the top shelf
of my bathroom cabinet

you left your white lacy
G-string
aaain the pocket of my
bathrobe

you left your pink lipgloss
with the glitter
aaaon my dressing table

you left my alarm clock
aaaset at 6:45 a.m.

you left your new novel
by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
aaaunread

we both left so much
aaaunsaid

but most of all
aaayou left your scent
buried deep inside my
pillow
aaa& even though it's been
six nights now & i've changed
the bed linen
aaarearranged the bathroom
cabinet & the dressing table -
placed your book in my bookcase
aaathrown out your G-string
aaayour lipgloss
& your yellow toothbrush

your scent is making my eyes
watery
aaa& still i can't escape you.
