talk to the dead

well, there’s a few I do, and yea, one cat
no, make that two

the dead don’t like period marks
although yea, that seems pretty odd


and pie?   they don’t care much for pie
I don’t understand, but that’s their choice

Tuesdays don’t matter in the least
Saturday, they’re unimpressed

me too, to tell the truth

conversation seems a little one-sided
but then, it always was

rain is good
clouds are better
sunny days, those are for fish

they talk about a valley brimming
with plum blossoms

like an ocean, all pink
they remember to this day

they like floating on water
they like it when your breathing
lands in the trees

listening, they’ve become very good
that way

happy to hear your voice

and that is why
