The last day of third grade
Is so clear.
There are cupcakes and gold stars.
You can give the lastness of it
Your full attention.
Not so the last time I saw my friend
(alive)
The last time I roller skated to work,
The last time I drew you,
Or the last time we made love,
And slept together,
Held and holding.
