a follow up to alameda + an old flame

You asked if I was interested in reconnecting.

I’m interested in reconnecting with the person who I’m losing right now, and it isn’t you.

I’m interested in you reconnecting with the person who I am losing, and it isn’t me.

My eyes burn and water, just the way they used to every time I’d drive through Alameda. They don’t anymore. Alameda doesn’t make me cry. I thought it did.

What makes me cry is that you are Love and Truth and you live under the same roof and sleep with, Silence and Fear. You have a family together. I don’t need either of you and he needs one. He needs the one that is most stunting to his growth as a human being.

There’s an old flame in Alameda. I’m in Alameda often and I no longer cry.
