The Breath of Goodbye

The Breath of Goodbye

Please don’t praise my poetry
Or painting or ask me
If I’m okay.
Of course I’m not.

Lean into me.
Listen for a heartbeat.
Let this breath of goodbye trill
With crickets and summer heat.

Let sighs. Let tears.
Let me miss you
As twilight settles,
Let the poem write itself.
