your name still breaks me open

I’ve given up my search for the word ‘stay’ in our dictionary
and exhausted myself trying to lose you in strangers’ poetry.
I’m finally running out of memory of us to write about
but I heard your name in passing today,
and it still sounded so much like a
cacophony of goodbyes and screaming in the rain.
