She did not send me a stack of photos as a 

going away gift 


I imagined that it would have been interesting

to see the stack of them;  an album  


The dances, the weddings (formal with forced smiles)

the fall weekends at the lake  (relaxed,  tshirts and jeans)   


She did not send me photos to save or to caption

probably knowing what I would write 









Here's an evening dark with shame, 

          Throw it on the fire

Here's the time I took the blame, 

          Throw it on the fire
