Happily Involved

by B.J. Burgins

I just want
her to remember me
but she says
she's happily involved

and maybe
I want her memory
to linger longer
within my selfish days
tied into my 
selfish ways.

What's her happiness
what's it's 
feelings and intensity,
what's it's 
worth and power-

amidst the moments
of our shared 
hours, moments,
minutes and days
tied into 
our complex ways.

I just wanted her
to remember me,
so what does
happily involved mean...
