goldson's full text on love and breakups:

‘See you later,’

I say to you

as I leave you for the last time.

I do not know it yet, but when I return

our pool will be dry.

There will be no evidence

of our glorious summer days

soaking in the sun;

nor remnants of our gin-soaked laughter,

as we trudge through the snow in the winter.

You are gone; I wish I were.

I see telephone lines as they reach through the countryside,

searching for you,

and I feel your voice vibrate through your body,

while I rest my head on your chest.

I see the curve of an arch,

and I remember how miraculously our bodies fit together.
