for Sophia

Our goodbye hinged

on time.

You said you didn’t want to waste

mine.

 

Wasted

and confused

Drunk from anger, not wine

I can’t seem to fathom

Why –

 

You were so effusive

Beauty

intellect

mine.

 

You cared

Or so

you said –

So you seemed

 

Why

 

Were you so effusive?

Anger with wine

Confused

and wasted

You said you didn’t want to waste

my time.
