Back then

She’s out in the back
Gardening
Where memories detach
When times were once peaceful
When things came alive
Back then

At dinnertime
Calling each other names
Exploitative for the two of us
Silent expressions
Like combat in hidden tempers
Don’t you remember

Could you have sworn
You remembered his name
One, step. Two, step
Full chamber orchestra
Mercedes GLA 250 parked outside
Your call

Dial-tone
