pink toothbrush

the pink toothbrush i gave you
a year or so ago –
(the one you used more
than your own toothbrush at home) –
is still in my bathroom

i keep thinking that i should throw it away –
but i don’t

it does not stand side-by-side, anymore,
with my green toothbrush,
it lays on the dust of my window sill

i find myself anxiously day dreaming that
if you stayed over again
you wouldn’t have a toothbrush to use

you will never stay over again,
but i can’t seem to
throw away that pink toothbrush on my window pane
