"They found the biggest tortoise in the world in South America today,”
you said, massaging the tender knot at the back of my neck
with one hand
removing your boots
with the other.
"They had to get a lorry or something to remove it, imagine that.”
I said nothing, thinking of all of the things you understand and
all of the things you don’t
like how I will love you forever but
probably from afar and
not in the way you want and
how you’ll find somebody new
to be with.
It’s only fair.
Maybe he or she will have
a tightness in the neck
a passion for useless facts
the power to stick around and
really, I miss you already.
