Any Bob Dylan quote, really.
Also...."Don't ever tell anybody anything. If you do, you'll start missing everybody."-J.D. Salinger (The Catcher In The Rye)

there are stains on the soles of your feet.

“stains of love,” you once told me.
was that you? i suddenly can’t

remember anymore.
“it’s been too long,” i tell you.
and you tell me that yes,

it has been far too long.
so then you kiss me.
and i let you because

i am your

i am your
and because i never learned,
because i never wanted to,
i kiss you back,
i kiss the stains on your feet.
they disappear,
but when you leave me,
i know that they will be

there again.

The author's comments:
A poem about feet.
And fools.
And love.
And the rekindling of love.
