Satin shoes

I might not always remember the pale daisy satin

And the way your hair was parted to the right

I won’t always remember the charming things we said

But instead the way it would have sounded from far away

Where we’d look like intricate tinker toys creating

Harmonies without melodies

In a sanguine fantasy

Before tides of ambiguity stripped it all down to an iron core

Only molecules of heavy metal and burnt orange rust

That reminded me of the center of a daisy

And those pale satin shoes
