She has gone from me but her voice
and the thought she will still call.
Those last times, anyhow, all words. For the
life of me, I can’t remember.

I can’t remember. All that time and
the thirty years of us already
a silent film somehow. Me, front row,
having taken it all for granted.


In memory of Janette Gardner who died on 15thApril 2018.
