adieu my knight of black and white

the-man-i-used-to-knowhe says
it was long ago
and far away
so, i finally
called him to say

i have your jacket
some hats
that book
do you want coffee?

with ice, not shaken
i got my reply
closed off
that sweet dichotomy
in a prison
of his own making,
i suppose,
with chains of smoke
for his own design
afraid to face
his shadows
on the walls of that cave
and so he sent
to retrieve
what he feared to face;
addicted to his pain
as much as to
this checkmate
and we are
too late.
so we will
always be
long ago
and far away
to me,
my friend,
