“dead leaves”



checking obituaries

 high roads, low roads, Dante’s circles, some gutters

dead love leaves no trace

    No visible trace…but scars deep into the heart.

    I do this. To me it is like a sickness, like how you feel when you eat too much cotton candy. Yuck.

      Hey Meg. I am guessing you “do” the obituary checking? Or just in general “searching for vanished lovers”?
      Thanks for visiting.

        searching for vanished lovers, or worried about his sibling in NYC after the storm, its the same thing though, searching for the dead, searching for what is dead, will anything be revealed in their passing? in your loss? what do you say when you see their mug shot on the internet, what does it say about you? too you? and you dwell on it for days. Your voice so many voices expressing this same notion. It must be a universal thing in human experience!

        I think sometimes poetry is at its best when it engages on a universal level which allows many people to relate–rather then just a select few. There are so many ways in which people “vanish”.
