Tango

Wouldn’t you like to do re-writes
of those Saturday nights and
repair all the wreckage left behind?

Memory is the best editor I know,
the darkness of
yesterday can glow in those dull
dusty places to illuminate faces that
I almost forget.

But I’m kidding no-one
not even myself,

you can’t re-write a book when
it’s already on the shelf in the
library.
