don't think

that just because we spoke
(for the first time
in months)
that this is okay. that
i'll just let you
back. let you slide
through the grid
& transmute
what you
had to say. it doesn't
work that way. you don't
just talk for
ten minutes & then
everything is back.
i don't believe
what you say so
running your
finger along my
tattered &
chiseled ear.
you're not making
anything better because
you are not here
with me. give it
let this silk unfold.

you are thin
lipped &
i miss you
in my life
but you
have been gone so
long. you forgot to
tell me
to let
loose &
die. you never
called. you never

we dearie we should
