deep night. fingers searching.
one key at a time.
what would you say when the light is cancelled
due to high winds?
good friends, nothing.
a slide guitar in the darkness
and then silence.
you. willing to start and use my name.
just to get what you need
and then nothing. not even a thank you.
history blows in like a bellow from the deep
You cannot tell me you didn’t think of it.
in a breath, can I tell you.
I have nothing good to say.
Nothing beyond a good bye.
tire tracks in the snow.
You forgot to say when you were leaving.
Broken life, broken limbs.
a hiccup until I can breathe again.
I just want to say
while you try to string the words together
Thank you for the silence
I never noticed.
