"A word is dead
When it is said
Some say.
I say
It just begins to live
That day."
--Emily Dickenson


Please,

One person,

Speak to me

On this collapsing playground of horrors!

All my life I’ve been pleading

For one hand to hold,

Walking on the outside of hand-holders

Whose togetherness

Is only meant for two,

Not me.

One person,

Help me!

When I thought myself alone

Last December

The shock of a friend’s heart

Served me to remember

Lone plus lone

Equals the together number

Two—

When you think yourself alone

Be aware of your brother

Sometime the pain of another

Will pull you through.

Don't. Don't say thank you to a thank you poem, or it will just go on and on and space-time will shift and we might end up in a black hole. Well, anyhow, thank you--AH! NO! (Mental breakdown)...
