Poetry: Adam Moorad’s “Villa Adrian”

Adam Moorad

Villa Adrian

you used to
screw a hick
i lived with
that’s how we met
we slept together once
and it happened again
in a celica
i didn’t recognize you
or even know
if it was actually you
and on another night
you danced for me
and called me
someone else’s name
and it reminded me
how i forgot
you know
i know
no one knows
about this
