CARBOLIC SOAP

That bar of carbolic 

soap you left

is still there

in my pink

tiled shower.

That same

standup

shower

once you were

where you

casually

said

let’s take

a shower

together

like it was something

we did all the time.

Now years later 

I think maybe

you thought we 

should have been

doing that all of

the time.

It happened 

on one of those 

nights when 

the moon lulled

people to sleep

summer stickiness 

was on our bodies 

and we fell in love

(again) one more time

all over.
