When I discovered that squeezing toothpaste from the bottom of the tube
was a less wasteful method to use toothpaste
it was a significant moment for me

15 years after meeting you
you still squeeze it from the top
despite my repeated efforts to share the significance of that moment with you

I am writing a poem about significant moments
and it feels like I am
just recording the useless insides of my head

At least I am using a poetic technique
to phrase this poem
I am not sure that has any significance though

I didn’t even use a simile
