Poem by Juliette Sebock


We talk about exes

who we left on friendly terms,

and those—usually just one—

who we'd take all over again

in an instant.

Even though we know

there's no use in hoping

for a reconciliation,

we can't help but

fantasise about them

in a daydream

merged with memories

and wondering

if they'd be game

if they only knew

that we,

most definitely,

would be.
