POEM: je ne regrette rien, vous y compris

je ne regrette rien, vous y compris

not that weekend in the City of Bridges
not the ride to the top of the Duquesne Incline
not the way the rain fell on the concrete
not all those back roads at 35 mph
not wings and root beer at Otto’s
not the little blond kid who likes me
not listening for car doors in the night
not the movies we never quite watched
not even what happened after
not all the times we stopped
not all the times we started
not one of the great loves of my life
not one of the great losses
