I don’t remember the bitter lemons
I don’t remember
The yellow rinds that have left my mouth
And gone to yours
I don’t remember the bitter lemons
-Dorothea Lasky

I don’t remember the bitter lemons

I don’t remember

The yellow rinds that have left my mouth

And gone to yours

I don’t remember the bitter lemons
