keep in touch

I keep

a coffin on the empty desk

beside my own in the sunstroked room –

blooms of tissue paper, the perfume of designer shoes

ghosts of what once voluptuoized within that cardboard earth, and the corpse-

white letters from all the wonderful people

who promise to write for a while

then forget altogether

they abandoned
