ForAWhile (to Bean)

And then like

A letter you

Promised you slipped

Back into life

Tickling like a

Pair of pants

That once fit

I once again

Wore you like

A beard outgrown

I’ve learned to

Trim to see

Myself beneath the

Hair you are

You’re not my

All I am

You’re simply here

For a while

For as long

As I want

And not you
