i received a call today

out of the blue, from someone who’s been publishing my writing.

‘Sorry for neglecting you’, he says.

I hadn’t even noticed.

‘but do you mind if I still publish the work that you sent … when was it? Last year?’

oh, but of course not.

And then, when he names them, like something tingles inside… All these titles. All these words. I’d been in love, once before.

How could I forget?
