she said it
matter of fact
like she was sure
let them go
she said

imagine how free you'll feel
I was just talking out loud
asking the wind
or my computer screen
how one goes about erasing someone from your life
is it a process?
do I need a form
the full moon
do I dance around
recite spells

she put down her Starbucks cup on her desk
she was working
we work together
but not long enough to know all the secrets
that glue us together
for years
not yet

her coffee cup
beautiful lip marked up
something I focused on
when I told her thank you
when I tried hard to believe her
