I Once Dated A Writer

i once dated a writer

I once dated a writer and
writers are forgetful,
but they remember everything.
They forget appointments and anniversaries,
but remember what you wore,
how you smelled, on your first date…
They remember every story you’ve ever told them –
like ever, but forget what you’ve just said.
They don’t remember to water the plants
or take out the trash,
but they don’t forget how to make you laugh.
Writers are forgetful
because they’re busy
remembering the important things.
