The First Goodbye

laying in your bed
watching you
get dressed
the permanent ring in the
back pocket
of your blue jeans
i’m missing you already

    "Permanent ring in the back pocket", strong line creating a potentially questionable situation. Why is it permanent? This is wonderfully done & daring! :)
