Why would you?


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.
