Audio Poem: “You’re Alone”

Year written: 2006
Collection:  The Salt Flats

You’re Alone

What do I care if the cable man
came to your house
& called you a whore?
Why should I blink my eyes
(your parents complain too much about
the state of Welfare)
if you have a troubling thought
sweating trembling in your pale-lit
bedroom?

I’m not you
(you wouldn’t even let me brush your hair)
