    at least not the ones
    u expected



    it's three years since u left

    the fingers of a hand
    aunt minnies ring
    5 green opals
    me in the middle

    who asked u
    u ruin everything
    y dont u write a novel

    the pinky
    the tiniest little limb
    easiest to break
    snap
    in 2

    i missed jackies kids b day
    in the swirl
    of my film
    me me me

    i would tell u today
    that they both called
    birthdays again missed
    god children
    forgotten

    last night jim lipton took me back
    to the beginning
    and u were there
    the night brandon tarnikoff
    saw me at igbys
    the 3 am call
    I GOT SNL!!!!
    2 u

    kaite wrote a poem
    about getting lost
    in key west
    and then
    being found

    it's three years since u left

    my middle finger is dead
    it cannot feel
    a few years back
    we tied the tendon
    of finger #4
    the ring - u
    to the stuck one
    me
    now they both don’t work
    in one last desperate attempt
    to right it

    and joni mitchell sings
    “if you’re happier without me
    i’ll try not to care
    but if u still dream about me
    please listen to my prayer”

    how many flares do u send up
    before u realize
    no one is searching
    4 u

    at least not the ones
    u
    were sure of

    still gone
    u
