Thank you, love, for that brief encounter,

that nameless spark.

We’ll remember you the rest of our

lives; we can’t help but remember as we

try to untangle all the tentacles

you wrapped us in.

Thank you, love, for all that you’ve done:

you trapped us here and went away laughing;

you poisoned us with your kiss and

moved on to poison the next ignorant
