Aftermath

Aftermath

The rose I gave you
is still where you dropped it,
on the table next to your
untouched champagne glass.
I made good use of the bottle,
and the ring is returnable
since you never opened the box.
I wish we could have eaten
because this reservation
was not easy to get:

Café Mirage
Table for two 8:30 PM

Huh.. that’s funny.

This is just too good. It's powerful and communicated with few words. Marvelous poetry. I agree with Neva, so sad...
