Dropped Pages – No One Home

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

  1. That’s a lovely succinct memory/reflection.

  2. Thanks, Brad! I had forgotten all about this poem. It’s been fun going through old material and rediscovering things.
