"I love you. I love you. I send this message through my fingers and into his, up his arm and into his heart. Hear me. I love you. And I'm sorry to leave you." -Jenny Downham

The inside pocket
of his coat
contains his last
and in the
back pocket
of his jeans
there's a Zippo lighter
that hasn't
felt so heavy
in years.
Not since
she found
his pack
and cried until he
it was just left over
from before he quit
and he had
his fingers crossed,
hoping she
couldn't smell
the nicotine
in his apology.

(she did)
