You know,
it's almost relief
to find you
were drunk all that time
to learn you've unremembered
our getting-to-know-you conversations
all that laughter wandering
into the wee hours
which made me
fall in love with you

Almost feels lucky -
because there's no place
in your world
for so much unfeined awkward,
for all this
unrestrained vulnerability
for sweet, sincere veins
or sober muscles
which only beat
open
open
open
open
