candle light come this way

 remember breathing?

        those fields circumscribed

                      by asphalt and headless cages

      remind me of how your bones
curve in now years after


I won't throw away this memory

         so easily like all the others do

I promise           please come back

         in pictures instead of words

I just read on another blog that now is the “winter of poetry.” I remembered you writing that poetry may end when the poet can no longer put their Line/meter in the way they want because technology interferes. I feel that this poem refutes that we are in the “winter.” I also love that you have full command over the Line of your poem.
