Poem: "Do You Think I'd Let You Go?


Do You Think I’d Let You Go?

In the winter he had the reddest cheeks
of the Lincoln College crowd who included me and you.
He was not popular like Darren, looked puny beside Anthony,
but in the winter he had the reddest cheeks.
He walked out on you and the kids, you wrote, in the New Year.
The older boy is difficult, the younger came down with swine flu
in the winter. He had the reddest cheeks
of the Lincoln College crowd who included me and you.
