Topic of conversation ~
It's you I remember, you talking, you shedding your skin while somewhere, in another room, someone was shedding their will to live, & the air became visible with signs of hope abandoned.
My place in the situation had no redeeming factor other than to breathe in the regret you mistook for dust.
Yeah, that what I remember; you talking & gesturing & smiling & shaking your head, saying, “No, not you.”
