Recordings

Do you ever have
moments in your head?
You play them back,
wondering what went wrong
and what didn’t.

Something you said?
Possible. You know
you’re not that smooth.
Or did you mishear
her tone and his intentions?

Then it gets annoying
when the moment won’t leave
and you’re stuck
staring at it for hours,
still unsure.

You’re wondering if
the moment is a regret.
You know,
one of those phrases
you hang on to forever.

And later that month
you’re still waiting.
The data is gone,
and the sound is fuzzy,
but that moment’s still there.
