Paean

by A. N. Irvano


It scares me
to talk about
who
my ex is
because young
girls listen to his
music
or maybe because
I still do—

I reminded him
that it hurt when
he wrote an album
about the end of us
titled
I wish you had stayed—

someone
had asked him if he
had meant
he wished I
had stayed
away
or
I had
never left
