going going gone

Posted to Poetry




The yellow building across the road from me
Doesn’t exist
I thought it did
But now, that is gone

I have been awakened
I have--what was banter when no one spoke?--
Been awakened
“Hav’ yuh?”

I have just discovered
Everything I thought was a period
Is a question mark (Cheese soaks my bones because of it.)
Do you think I am a hypochondriac?

Should I feel like this?
Should I feel?
Should I like this?
I like this.

I feel like a hypochondriac
Going
Going
Gone

Went the yellow building
Across from me
The day it left
My memory
