We Were Just Leaving

This conversation.

It’s missing from your voice.

My sores are common enough.

You wash over me.

 

It’s in the way we talk

Or in the way we leave,

Like nothing much matters.

 

This murmur.

It’s missing from your ears.

 

Just lean closer to me.

You might like the sound

Or just forget to breathe.

 

It’s sore enough now.

We were just leaving.
