former lovers

i’ve got a stencil
outlining every way
i can tingle your senses.
tracing the silhouettes of
former friends, former lovers –
finding a pattern to match.
stirring every nook and cranny,
cracks filled with sensual regret.
playing second fiddle to an
orchestra of chisled jaws –
conducting a symphony
to find a familiar melody.
please don’t remember,
every guy you seem to know,
every guy that seems to show,
every man that’s ever met,
my angel from above.

but since your memory’s fine,
i’ll take my time.
