I have forgotten you!
I have forgotten The One
that won you.
I put my trust in princes,
in the strength of my own hand -
tied now behind my back.
behind the bus-stops.
Will the day of our return
return to mock us?
Like some head-waiter's
parting smile -
"Come back anytime -
but bring your passport..."
