"i'm home, babycakes"

2 22 2015



i read what i wrote nearly five years ago


i talk about our two days of bliss on the beach

the drinks while watching the sunset, the fine food and company

the long talk we had by the fire

the chaste kisses, the longing, the unrequited passion

the final, sad goodbye.


for two days she was my everything

my north country girl

and for every day following


so i thought   i was wrong

the feeling dissipated  

what is left is wistfulness


i cannot bring her back

not in my life   not in my thoughts

not the way it was

something has gone dim






i’m developing a fondness for whiskey in the evenings

is that a bad thing

maybe it’s being away from home

you have your beer  

maybe it’s the adult version of a warm blanket

I like the idea of code-switching in poems, the way you bring two Korean words for "Korean Drama" and "School." I think the rest of the poem revolves around those two ideas; there's a lot of gaps and fissures in this piece, at least for me.
