Ellie has decided to share a deleted poem from one of the drafts of FORGET ME NOT.
Throughout the next three days,
I manage to be
when she snores all night.
when she accidentally
drops my toothbrush in the toilet.
when Reno takes us bowling
and she cheats.

I love this poem because, even though it's unclear who the narrator is, or who Beatriz is, or what the relationship between the two is, it IS clear that the narrator is unhappy about her current situation. She comes across as a little sassy, don't you think?
Thank you for sharing this poem with us, Ellie!
