I can’t pick up the phone and call you, so instead I write you a poem
After Rebecca Lindenburg
Isn’t it funny how the page naturally spaces shit out?
We never talked about that, but if you were alive
I’d ask you about it now.
I know poetry is meant to make the unclear obvious;
I’ve only ever been good at seeing what isn’t there.
Did you know?
In Ancient Greek a “;” is their question mark?
I like that.
A pause, still waiting for an answer.
I could bite off a block of adjectives,
but I know you get the point.
