six years, 2,900 job

six years, 2,900 job
losses, and it’s still
a wonder – 165 acres
of steel and silence,
faceless men pushing
papers, licking
their index fingers

secrets hide

secrets hide
in abandoned things,
grow into
stories that know how
and when to flex
their muscles,
and wait
for a sign,
an off-the-cuff,
maybe accidental
mention

and along the way

there are absences

there are absences
the size of a tear in
your coat pocket,
manageable to a
degree until
something slips,
is lost, and no
amount of backtracking
and scanning the
pavement of
your memories
will retrieve that
abandoned feeling

to become abandoned,

to become abandoned,
one must be found
at least once and
again, the last to
put under
a whispering
spell to remove
all traces of ache

where are your

where are your
glasses now
that you are not
here
to wear them?

i can see them so clearly:

riding on the chest
of a tourist

dangling between
slim fingers in a bakery

hiding
underneath a pillow

suntanning
by the windowsill

or lined up like
abandoned things
in the top drawer of
your corner desk
still waiting

when was the last
time you
touched them?
