you can't imagine loving someone again, although it's clear you want to.
it slips out
when you've had too much to drink
you apologize in the morning
the way a man would say nothing.
the gallery is closed
walk to the cafe.
catch glimpses of yourself in glass doors
in stares from couples in matching t shirts or hair color.
put your head down over a notebook to make something you'd like.
something from your hands that could be good.
connect with a woman over language, or stories about selves
your history in cartoon outlines
hanging on a wall nearby.
