Plum Sauce by Jan-Peter Westermann

In case you wonder
Do I feel betrayed
badly used, left behind
The answer is

On good days your memory
is like plum sauce
A mix of acid and fruit
which helps me digest
other, more nurturing

The choice to have trusted you
was and is my own
I pull those covers to my chin

But what you did with my trust
is yours to forgive

huh......very powerful, but I'm going to have to keep re-reading and digesting and figuring. Which is a good thing, of course.
