From the poetry collection Look Winter in the Face, 2015.


Is he the one who got married
or the one who took a job in Saudi Arabia?
And if he took the job, what did it pay?
The girl he married, do you remember her name?
I heard he wanted to buy a house in the suburbs
and he had to make a choice did he buy that first house
or was it the other one and
did the house have three bedrooms
or four?
there is so much to remember.

  1. Thank you. You know, sometimes I think the point of these kinds of discussions is that you can’t QUITE remember, and so the speculation just gets better and more interesting, maybe more than the actual happenings. One of my favorite kinds of conversation!
