The Loss Leader

The loss leader

I'm filing these outcomes
In alphabetical order

To appreciate these moments
After they've been forgotten

I'll hold onto the smell
After the faded photo

Fails to evoke what you had in mind
And what was agreed upon

There'll be no new notes to make
Across a torn border

No reminders needed about
How far we've come

We know in our blood
How much further

We need to run
