ya learn

if sometimes the learning takes years

I thought it was me

the night she took off running

coming back high speed

to slam into me

trying to throw lefts rights

& I was thinking

I’d bought her dinner

had been pleasant company

& she never did quite explain

any or all of that

I let her go some time down the road

kept in touch to watch

rinse repeat the same over

finding some man setting up home

some time later split up

begin again

& they were never quite right

never quite all wrong

& ya learn

if sometimes the learning takes years

the problem

is not

always you
