what good

Rate: 0 Flag

you asked me what I had done with your letters

-if I had even opened them-

if I had read them

I might have known then that you left her;

that you were coming in the spring.

and what can I say but that I might have?

I might have but, there were so many other things

-the sky in April seemed endless, cloudless

and I couldn’t stop searching it.

in May I hung the laundry out to dry in the still cool air.

when I made my bed it smelled of wind, of dew.

in June the strawberries bloomed and ripened

just like always in the shelter near the door.

what can I say – your letters

I might have read them, but what good would it have done?

what good would it have done without you here to speak the words?
