The Wish

The Wish

Remember that time you made the wish?

I make a lot of wishes.

The time I lied to you
About the butterfly. I always wondered
What you wished for.

What do you think I wished for?

I don’t know. That I’d come back,
That we’d somehow be together in the end.

I wished for what I always wish for.
I wished for another poem.
