Now a first-person declaration that verbs a noun.
Now a pet name, a yellow object, and a sensory experience.
Now something about what this poem is not.
Now the confession that you get nostalgic, but in your own words.
Now a couple things about how life has lately felt.
Now something that alludes to being lonely.
Now who or what it is you miss, and a question about how we recover.
Now a few things about the local flora
and a frank assessment of your current state.
Now a zoom out. Now something that is gone
and something that is still here. A strange pronouncement.
An assertion that X is Y.
Now a question. Now a question. Now another.  end
