unreliable narration

i am the worst at looking back.

i never forget a face. i check

on you with foggy brain. i want

you to do well and i want you.

i never forget a face. i check

on you by google search. i want

you to do well and i wish you

were dead. there’re memories where i see

to you by googling my longterm memory.

we said goodbye but knew it’d never

be dead. there’re memories where i see

times when we’d never know. i want

to say goodbye but knew we’d never.

i want to call you, waiting for

times that we’d never know. i want

your call to come through to me.

 

signals

i forget who i am. i am one

i used to love. in me, the love’s

still there, and nowhere is the

one. i live inside small

rooms. observe signals

thru TV screens

which alight

rooms in

me
