feet flash good resized.jpgSeattle Love Poem

for Sheila

I wonít spend the afternoon in a cafť because that would just be missing you.
I wonít catch a bus back downtown to the Seattle Museum of Art now that Iím uptown
Because that would just be
Missing you.
I wonít drink another Coke. I wonít clean Amberís apartment. I wonít shave.
I will not.
I wonít go to a used bookstore & browse through books I donít want to buy
Because that would just be
Missing you.
I wonít cook rice, wonít go see a film, wonít flip through magazines.
I wonít listen to Kind of Blue or think of Woody Allenís Manhattan while so much
Distance
Separates us
Because that would just be missing you.
I wonít go to the post office, wonít call you at work.
I wonít type.
I wonít write this poem.
