Reconnect

my nose is running
but i don’t blame it
i’m scared too,
my habits,
no, tendencies
make it hard to get excited
about contact.
so she didn’t hate me
nearly
as much as i thought
she did,
or maybe she did,
but either way
thats in the past
and there’s a bridge
somewhere
in all of that ash.

    I like the impact of the ending, i.e. the last four lines where ‘past’ rhymes with ‘ash.’ The notion of a bridge is a wistful touch, which makes me smile at the end.

    I’ve also enjoyed reading other poems of yours here, like “Fuel” and “Words” and “A Day Without Nails” (compact and excellent). Cheers.

    Glad to see you are back writting again. This one hit me the most.
