Evan Louro-Reyes, Total Domination IPA

And I saved that Ninkasi bottle

from the last time I saw you.

I remember specifically

my roommate asked how we were doing

but she meant it innocently, as a friend.

We glanced at each other briefly,

I saw your eyes,

then your fingers as they clawed gently at the label.

 

Your fingers,

I’d written about them before

in another time and place

that seems now like a different life and a different world.

 

Anyway, I kept the bottle,

I keep it on my dresser,

sometimes I look at it and see the tiny folded corner,

the last thing I saw you touch.
