Two poems

So, last night I wrote two poems that I won't ever publish except for here and I wanted to share. They will probably be cannibalized for parts in the future. Without further ado, poems about absence.

(No Title)

I took notes for a poem about
lavender lads and ladies,
the twilight people who come
from the world of debut mon,
and when I went to source my
new-old words, I found the
articles notably absent.


(Second poem with no title)

In absentia vobus
In the absence of you-
you, curled in a heart
on the worn carpet.

I scrambled through wires
to reschedule our rendezvous
I’m sorry my voice got
caught inside my ribcage
