Damned if you do


I was married before
a long time ago it seems now
but it didn’t go well.
It is true that it had the appearance
of going well, but we were people
with invisible expectations
each made from different tongues
and thus impossible to recognize
let alone articulate.

It is not a matter
that I do not miss her
that I never have
but more that I am made tired
with just the thought of us two
and I am sorry also
for wasting such a lot of time
hers particularly
on a road never built.
