24: Porter Tomato

you leave them leaning

against our door

in brown Wal-Mart bags

or in cardboard boxes

and we find them hours

after you've gone

every time I think

about how much

we spent talking

about different things

or how I sat in a chair

while you tried to reteach


on how to play the guitar

it feels like forever


I wish you'd knock

come in


like we used to

before it's too late

and like the rest

I lose you

for good
