You said,

take what
I want
and leave
the key
under the mat.

But as I stand
leaning on
front door frame,

I see
that belongs
to me.

I leave the
key in the
door and
walk east
and stare
into rising sun

how many
steps it will
take to forget
your name.

“east” is previously published in Weasel Press (2022) and Introspection Quarterly (2022)..
