lavender and memories

she said
sniff the lavender
i brought from the girl
at wimbledon superdrug
where I sometimes i worked
i told her so and she told me no
way, she was moving
to the clapham branch-
told her they're all nice
told her where to have lunch
she asked me my name
and i gave it to her
i didn't stop to think-
they'll know then soon
that I didn't disappear
that I'm still here-
the old gang
tell them I've gone out
with a bang
a silent bang
I planned
to visit
I did.
