back when we used to
exchange letters, everything
was more – like meeting

in grand central this november,
recalling the length of your hair

along Monterey

i love the way you

i love the way you
scrawled Brooklyn
onto the side
of my care
package, each
letter a seed
aimed for home.
years later, those
calligraphic
tendrils still
blossom in my heart
like the perennials
in your garden,
a surprise and
not a surprise

misplaced envelope –

your letters on the

your letters on the
page
form words that
indicate nothing
and everything,
a drugged yearning –
when one word
slips, the rest
braces for impact

sometimes you write so

sometimes you write so
out of the blue
as if you have chosen
to use
grey for so long
that i could not have seen
it coming –
change
camouflages
particularly well
within a worn fist

i tried

i tried
to turn the words
around, but to be
honest, there is very little
words can
undo once done

they came straight
out of the envelope
so neatly, with a tinge
of regret – and
i could tell
that they had taken time
to iron their dark suits,
some pleated skirts, a
handful of ties, before
making this journey

i tried
to turn the words
around, but lost
eye contact as
several clusters
suddenly bent
over to wring
out their formerly
perfect attires
