the lovely Anastacia

I used to wear these shoes 
that never quite fit
wore them with vigor til the soles
fell out

I used to wear this necklace
the one with the unicorn
that I quickly grew out of
but could never let go of

A token
memory held of a lifetime
that I can't forget

regardless of the pool
I drown in
swimming, as I do

over hearing misheard conversations
watching words disconnect in the 
swirling of dissonant white noise

she spoke too loudly
so he wouldn't listen
but the conversation remained
the same
