Title text: You make forgetting look so easy.
At the beginning of the comic, Cueball is wandering around in a barren area, supposedly a desert, thinking about his ex-partner, in which he, at first, appears to be fondly remembering him/her, but the last two boxes explain that he is trying to take a long walk to forget him/her, and is obviously not very good at it.
The title text implies that his ex-partner had easily forgotten him, and he wishes that he could forget more easily. It's also possible that he means that it's so hard to forget him/her that forgetting anything else is simple in comparison to it.
Note: When Cueball mentions walking 1000 miles, he may be exaggerating, as, due to his lack of hiking/traveling gear, most likely has only walked a hundred or so, either that, or the story is similar in nature, or even in the same universe, as comic 505. Though this might also be a nod to a What If question about how long it would take for two immortal people to find each other on a barren planet.
- [Cueball is walking through a wasteland talking to himself.]
- Cueball: I am alone in this wasteland, a thousand miles from you.
- Cueball: But I haven't forgotten the feel of your skin, your mischievous smile.
- Cueball: You'd think a thousand miles would be enough.
- Cueball: I guess I'll keep walking.
