twenty years ago

i no longer recall
why i thought
i loved you

age 16
she invented the concept

how stubborn and
brazen i was

but i remember the monumental sex
we shouldn’t have been having
twenty years ago

in our shoe box sized apartment

which only now
lends some credibility
to the fiasco

only one tiny regret of which we will not speak

so don’t feel unappreciated
my dear
as far as legacies go
you could do worse
