i have tried acupuncture countless times
in a day. today i am soaking both
my feet in water with epsom salts
hoping when i am done
my feet won’t
feel the same way
as my heart and knees and
hips felt about you
that day

last time you were here
they refused
to let me walk you out that door
it’s not a strange thing to me i believe
when you are in love with someone
a whole lot of things are involved
