S.F. Wright: Devastating / Again

Hardly knew me,

And I


Yet when

She texted

Saying that

Though we

“Got along great,”

I lived too far away,

It felt


I will

Find faults.

But right now

She’s still


And as I wait

For, at least,

The sun to go down

To start drinking,

I again think of

That text,

And the song

I was listening to:

“Wuthering Heights”—

A British pop tune,

One I’d never heard before,



Maybe brilliant;

The type of song

That it is so easy

To like,

Which I was

Starting to do;

And now

I’ll never

Listen to it

The same way
