Poems of a Young Man: “My Official Retraction”



is to retract that open invitation I offered.

Forget everything I’ve said.

All those words

were either lies

or wishes.

I hope you didn’t believe in me

the way I believed in you.

Perhaps, I was only joking.

Maybe it was just a lark.

Nothing has passed between us

except air.


And I want that air back.
