Your Stuff

15 June 1998


It was easy to pack your things,
I played romantic music
While doing so,
I missed you still,
But it was easy to eagerly pack your stuff.

I had a little wine at the end
Of my cardboard box party
And Patsy Cline was being played;
It almost could have been sad,
As I packed your drawers away,
But I was happy, or I felt complete
Since I knew that our time had passed.

I found a love poem
That I thought I had written for you,
How sweet that you had saved it!
But as I decided to to throw it away,
Looking over it,
I noticed that my name was not Steve,
So I did not throw it away,
I packed it, too;
So keep Steve,
Leave me, and I will be gone--
Erased--Eradicated—Kaput—No more.

Packing was easy
And now
When and what feelings do resurface
I can write them down
In my great American novel;
All hope is here,
In solitude;
I am happy we only had a verbal agreement
