If these were the last words you say to me
would they be words
Would you spend hours thinking about our time together
days hours minutes seconds
of drug induced escapes
Would you phrase it with precision and craftswoman-ship
Or would you blurt out
the obvious redundancies
I am tired of listening to
I would spend hours thinking it through
place special importance on the way
your taste your smell your quick deep breaths
lingered in my memory.
What would you do?
