I cannot live on your terms
but I cannot change
what can’t be changed
so why is it so hard to let it go?
I look at my lonely neighbour
the sweet smell and the creamy smoke
of his cigar
remind me of you
“Romeo Y Julieta” I read on the package
isn’t it ironic?  I think and recall
Alanis Morissette asking that in her song
I’m gonna buy myself a car, I suddenly decide
the cute, red Beetle Cabrio
to feel cosy and safe and alive
and to drive
as far away as I can
till I find a breakthrough
