(title) May I

December 16, 2007
By Eleanor Nurmi, Washington, DC

she left behind

a void and


a stain and

a traditional note,
in spider-scrawl


with loops and angles

that looked crabby and unlike her;
the void can be filled

the stain will be cleaned
and the note should be burned,


but everyone says it mentions me

and
i can’t wait to read it;


i’m sure she keeps a copy with her.
