ANOTHER PROGRAM
(9/2/14)


abstinence
of contact

complete
and total

not even
texts
or emails

90 deletions
in 90 days

like
the alcoholic
removed
from drink
the disease
of distance
only grows
stronger
with time

to see her
again
after three
months
and feel
nothing

less
than nothing

she is just
the stranger
who was living
in my house
for six
years

reconciliation
now
is a ridiculous
daydream

I study
her face

her body

looking
for a hint
of familiarity

but I
barely
remember
her name

I think
that it started
with a
C

I may
still
be mistaken
