NaPoWriMo Day #16

The prompt at NaPoWriMo today was;

Today I challenge you to take your inspiration, like our featured interviewee did in the chapbook she co-authored with Ross Gay, from the act of letter-writing. Your poem can be in the form of a letter to a person, place, or thing, or in the form of a back-and-forth correspondence.


Dear Ex-Lover

I'm finding your absence a little easier to swallow considering you've left a smear of your former self, a frown I've yet to decontaminate from my picture-window view.  For there's a certain contentment found in the theory that you refuse to remove yourself more thoroughly.  It would appear to me that there's something still left of me unaffected that you feel I'd be humbled by your ever-awkward touch.  Perhaps you wish to still persuade some part of me.  Yet I rest you assure that whatever portion I had once reserved for you is available no longer.

Enjoy Moving Along &
Never Yours Again,
Stacy
