“This is called being street-smart: dialing
a number that you know won’t be answered,
but the message you leave leaves proof that you tried.”

“You closed us off like a parenthesis
and left me knowing just enough to miss.”

“I was afraid to say, you made me feel
my sectioned heart, quiescent loins, and spill
past boundaries the way blackberry-brambles grow
up those tenacious hills I left for you.”

“Not one word will make
you, where you are, turn in your day, or wake
from your night toward me.”
