Wonderful piece! At least you sound more grounded than I am. I keep falling into the into the "rose-((Canuck spelling)) coloured glasses" trap about the "ex" love of my life. Seems my brain can now ignore all the endless reasons that would never have worked out and may have killed us both. And, of course, you get to an age where the "Shit, if I can't date anyone until there's a vaccine, and OMG, what if there's no freaking vaccine for 10 years or more and then OMFG, I'll never find anyone and I'll die old, alone and penniless," insane paranoia kicks in. Completly straight and sober experience even though it is legal here. A real trip. (No real logic to the poverty angle but the brain just goes there anyway.) :-)

I’ve been a poet since I was five. Then after university, I worked at the Toronto Star as a journalist, editor, and public editor. Happier now, I write poetry.
