she’s outgrown his games
pulls from embraces
set sights on different aims
wrung out the rags to remove all traces
simplify simplify simplify
but in her case
more of her wants
pets and books and art
less of his influence
less popcorn in her hair
more documentaries and ID channel
antique roadshows and journaling
more shenanigans
his traces still felt
on his face
but not here
not here
