Backgammon

 

You tought me insecurity
against a rainfall sweet & mesmerizing
to be afraid of myself
to feel defeat in the win
of a battle of wits

We would parry around the board
you played my heart well
triumphant sipping bedtime
tea thick w/ honey
& Edith Piaf live
floating through the lazy fog

You are a memory I forever cherish
