So yeah. August wasn't so well thought out. We'll try this again.
And the third part of the gym rose up,
those on the treadmills, while
I watched, stretching,
on the stairs. She tipped him over and
he disappeared, shoelace into the elliptical,
and a drawn out sigh like buildings collapsing.
It was just us left now, and maybe our eyes
met, but we only heard our own music, earbuds,
squeal of cables, clack of dropping weights. I went
on later, they were all left on the gym floor,
and she aimed a wink at me as she left.
