I don't write,
- any more

I don't think I remember how to
or how to take my dry-throat swallows and let them be birds
how to turn words into things that matter, or how you
wrap up your heart like a four-cornered blanket
like a bundle on a stick before you leave town.

I don't remember how to start a sentence with "you are"
and end it in anything besides "drifting away from me".

I don't write, any more. Not even to you,
I just sit cross-legged in front of a thousand screens
and I touch my palms to the keyboard like you'll feel the heat of them,
and I

I don't write.
you you you you you you you you
you
y o u
it seems all i ever do it churn out goodbyes to a never-ending line of you

I really love this. It's simple, and it's short, but it says all it needs to say and it describes it all perfectly. I wish I wrote like this when I was writing about not being able to write (or at all, really!)
