The Forgotten Wish

Somewhere between two cities
I lost my hope

it still lies there someplace

like an empty can
on the side of the road.

Somehow between a thrown smile
and a disco urinal
I lost love

she left like a dog :
losing interest
after never being fed.

Sometime between october and the new year
I lost your memory

it faded out one day
as I ceased to even wish.
