Dropped Pages is a series of poems that were originally dropped from my books or chapbooks. I have reclaimed them here.
This poem was dropped from Everyday Angels and Other Near Death Experiences.
no one home
among the letters one pressed daisy
a sweet tattoo like crayon marks on the wall
everyone has witnessed at least one miracle
the cat came home with me after
the divorce, as did the piano
even if you never write back
even if you think of me as a sliver
I love my love it is what I have
when your heart is missing the point
