Monument

img_0816-2

I built a monument to you in one day
My obsession with the last word
Pushed me past known limits

You visited the finished thing today
But I forgot the plaque
No recognition of you this time

Too embarrassed to break my code
I took notes on your empty eyes
Examining my tireless work

I’ll never tell you it was you
And now you’ve left again
But that stupid monument still stands
