The singer

How do you remove
the memory of soft skin
and strong hands?
Thick beard
and heartache?

I don't remember his voice
only the way his neck felt
under my palms
as I rubbed every last
rugged note

"I tend to be quite loud"
he told me

And I don't remember his sounds either
only the way I made none
I made none
I made none
