i, remember, too, the times i remembered you. 
as i put water into the kettle or
picked up the little broken spoon from within
the sugar pot
both acts, i agree, too mundane to mention,
alas, these too, i’m left, alone, to do.
i remember; i’ve remembered you.

    Yes obviously I read this too while on the study break and had promised myself to actually comment and appreciate once done with the test. I literally have the email starred as important in my inbox which notified me of this post of yours but I just can’t understand how I really forgot to do that. I usually do not forget this kinda stuff:/. This poem was A-MAZING! I Seriously lovedd the enjambent and occasional caesurae, they just make the simple lines soo impactful. Totally loved the last line!
