How do you forget?

How do you forget?


I get to wondering how it is that you forgot

How you slipped me off and hung me on a hook

Walking away as if this was just another change of season

How you adjusted so easily to your new wardrobe

While I’m still wearing you like the dog hairs

That stay affixed to everything I own

Maybe you’ll wonder someday, looking in your closet

If I might somehow be able to fit with you again.
