two anniversaries

it’s been one year
to the day
since I opened the door
of the cage I was in
and stepped out
into the light.

it’s also been one month
to the day
since I went out
on a non-date
with someone who, as
it turned out,
wasn’t anywhere near
free to be
with me.

so happy anniversaries
to me. bonné anné,
bonné mois.
