in August, 1980

we were engaged, but you had doubts: I was divorced; 5 years younger than you; you had systemic lupus…

so when Sean’s, your nephew’s christening came in august, you disinvited me…

so I ran, thinking, it was over- you and me …

but then you showed at my McGraw Avenue flat and came in,

you opened yourself, I accepted

and all ended
