I asked the beloved

if there was anything

he’d not forgive


and saw my life

flowing like sand

through a sieve


until I saw

that several stubborn

gritty grains remained


‘So those are the things

you can’t forgive?’

I asked him solemnly


‘No sweetheart,

that sieve was yours.

Mine has much bigger holes.’
