Let’s Count

Two women left me in two days. To one
I brought, in vain, a poppy seed cookie
as big as a plate. She allowed me
everything, but didn’t want anything.

In the tram station we only shook hands.
The second one was my old love.
From her flat we took my comforter
a few days later with a third.

I turn two numbers face to face,
the three and the four. Between them,
I will remain alone. To let me know

what was going on, when she went
down to meet me she brought a bag
of trash. Since then, a year has passed.
