Two years and numerous emotions later

An exercise in positive negativity

The scene is a dreary café in some London suburb, where these former lovers have met. One in hopes of making up, the other …

“So you insist I’ve left no impact on you – ever?”
“You’ve simply ejected me from memory?”
“I’ve never rendered you happy or anything?”
“Yes, never. You’ve never rendered anything.”
“Thank you, my dear.”
“Good bye.”
