settle your stomach

settle your stomach

as we lie about

the how

and where

and for how long

but not what,

we always knew there was something –

we didn’t care what it was

as long as it was there.

I settled on your stomach

laughing about

the mess we have created

with our dishonesty

while your laughter

shook our skin

so that pieces of memories

fly in every direction

discharging our obligations –

if we cannot remember

our love

if we cannot define our feelings

maybe we never loved

maybe we never felt

at all.
