Brother Bollocks
contacts
his ex-wife
of another life
on the anniversary
of their wedding
date

although
they no longer
meet
they stay
in touch
through mail

email

texts
and posts

they are probably
on better terms
than ever

fondness
that indecipherable
result
of absence

they comment
upon how
quickly
the years
have passed

they share
information
that they know
only each other
will appreciate

then say
goodbye

again

Brother Bollocks
flips the calendar
to May

in order
to check
the anniversary
of their
divorce

their first
goodbye
