what will he remember
about you?

your voice
so melodic and lilting
as you yell for him
down the hall

to catch a spider?

your eyes
so bright and blinking
as you awaken
next to him

after snoring all night?

your face
so emotional and downcast
as you flick the switch
on the wall

and blow every fuse in the house?

or maybe
he remembers

that you need strong coffee
to liven up your mind
that you need protein with breakfast
to last through the day

that you have to have
that certain oil
to soothe your skin

when you're in a strange land?

what can he remember
about you
and what will he remember
about you
are two different things

and you're all the better for that
