Without Me


Before we became

distant

as two banks held a-
part by a river

we were close
as two bodies
allowing no chink
through which
even a sliver of light
could creep

and now
I am putting

a continent between us

wondering

whether my absence
will pop out at you
or make you revel
in how complete
you feel
without me
