this is a poem about


this is how the space between lines

                                                      creates space.

space makes the poem

                                   longer, and



i miss you.
do you miss me?

    i miss you.

this is how you learn absence

                                             by missing.

this is how you learn abstinence

                                                 with longing

the breath


sometimes caught

                            in the throat,

stretched out

                     on the page.
