Don’t look back

in my head 

I sing off-key

Pick through the rocks

On the steep uphill

Dark of course

Avoid the fruit

They say

I long to look 

Behind me

Willing  you be there still

As though a woman of no particular gifts 

Could summon the missing

With scraps of broken notes

Strung together
