SEND ME


Send me that moonless night you couldn’t get through


And the poems you wrote for her when she loved you.


Send me that song you sang for her, each time you met


And the image of those eyes you can’t forget.


Send me those memories you’ve wrapped in green


And the times you told her to come back, in vain.


Send me that pillow you’d cried on when she left


And the feeling of love-lost that slowly crept.


Send me that night-star you wished upon


And the pain-stuck smile you carried along.


Send me all of those times you wanted her back


And that part of your heart, she’d hacked.


I’d take them all, set ’em ablaze


and bury the ashes.


Come with me.


There must be someplace


for two mad people.


We’ll find it.


Come.


 


FLIGHT


If we could fly away together, you and me,


and take our needed rest at a sailing


ship, & find fish to eat for dinner;


if we could share each other


like an island, would you


ever want to fly back


to the shore or


would you


stay?


 


WISH


He types an e-mail into


his BlackBerry. His suit


fitted to perfection.


The wind blows and he drives


away in his black car.


Her aura fills the air


as she walks out of the room.


Her pencil skirt fits snugly


as she sits in a chauffeur


driven sedan and leaves for work.


Across the street


staying warm in his old


quilt and thin, weathered coat


huddled against the cold wall;


he watches. And wishes.
