WHAT SHE REMEMBERS
And she remembers them meeting
and watching him eating
and she remembers them dancing
and leaning against him
and feeling him harden.
She went to the ladies, dragging him in.
And she remembers them standing
on the edge of the cliff
and the wind was so strong
and the ground so distant
and he joked not to worry – he was insured
and she had her arm round him – and she gave it a thought.
But she can’t remember which she prefers
and she can’t remember which is worse
the times they argued all night through
or these times now when they barely curse.
