265 Readings


I lost much waiting for you to die

and it seemed like forever

were you ever really here

I recall your Dracula slicked back hair look

your sideburns years

but it wasn’t until I saw

the innumerable sport jackets

and funny rude odd t shirts

the coffee table art books

travel guides

all the things you once were

and were no longer

gathered in the middle of a dumpster

to be taken away

that I really knew you

it never occurred to me

that I would wish to seek your advice

but that’s how it goes 

I need your help figuring out what’s left

of my time but

I didn’t know I would

until I took part

in the erasing of yours
