CLONE

if i could
i would clone myself
and leave me with you
i would still walk away
but also i would stay
and water the pots in your garden
and feed the dirt of your girls’ sunlight
while i sat here away from you too
writing poetry about you
and when the winter came
i can’t be too sure that then
the clone too would not go
