..as you left..

you would not come back

except for visits

you came again in auto fill

last evening sat alone

we still cannot understand

there is no explanation for that

nor what you did

you are a ghost to us now


we watched it on tv

you thought we were broken

yet we watch you solidly, bravely like joan

with just one comma throughout

we no longer come ragged

we watch you leave


tell you this

there are some do not believe

will not sleep while others will

and some

wish to be invited

some photos show nothing
as does the work i produce

yet it means something if
you go to look
