I should have dated losers

I should have
dated losers

who would eventually
slip through the cracks
into near or complete

who wouldn't turn up
in newspapers
unless arrested
or in death notices
read by no one
but those waiting
to die

who would disappear
even from memory
face forgotten
footprints erased

as if - unlike you -
they never were.
