Nine Step Plan

14 days sober,
2 weeks cold turkey
and I finally can’t taste her on my breath,
smell her on my clothes,
feel her in my arms.
Spasms of withdrawal through my leg to my toes.
Toenail polish splits into a million black shards I will no longer smoke.
I begin to hum our songs,
only to find I’ve forgotten the words.
