Email poem

Email

 

This

Afternoon

Spent writing

Emails.

I avoid

Your address.

Not sure

I have

The right one

Now.

Better look

Online.

Have you

Moved out,

Returned to

Singing,

Still painting?

Your mom

Would approve.

I think of her

Giving

After-school

Piano

Lessons in

The other

Room.

Look

I’ve found

Your website.

Hope you

Are well.

 

(a pale thing compared to the lush letters I sent you in school and which, now, I have no permission to send you.)
