RECOLLECTION

“ Do you remember ?
We burnt everything
To make a fire
To welcome the new year.
Do you recall ?
You stuck to blankets
To get warm
To make love.
To kill lust.
Do you memorise?
I puffed on unlit carbon
To fight frozen hearts
To light a fire
To love.
Do you remorse?
We slept in cold
We made love
I lit a smoky thing
Like a fire.
We slept in cold
Do you? ‘’
