more to remember

if only there were more to remember
than your brand-name hair
and curiously unsure hands

did we kiss?
thin-lipped answer     yes

waking to an unknown spring-broken dawn
i see the logic of your absence
before my eyes find you gone

but the mouth you left behind remains the same
to kiss the next lover and the next
with untiring hope of an end
