Three Hundred Sixty Five



365 days ago I walked out the door for
The last time
And took the elevator down to the street
We never really said goodbye 

365 days have passed without a meal
Only a couple of snacks
Brief
Inconclusive
Lacking the necessary nutrients to feed a growing hunger

365 times the sun has come up
With you in my mind
Before I even had the chance to open my eyes
And see you’re not there

365 times we’ve spun on our axis
While we made the loop around the sun
Right back to where we started

365 years from now
If we find ourselves in different bodies
Closer together
Give us another chance
Love
Give us a chance

Named one of New York's Best Emerging Poets 2019, my poetry chapbook The New Normal was published by Analog Submission Press. My novel The Zoo was published by Cacoethes Publishing House. Other poems and short stories have appeared in Subterranean Blue Poetry, The Journal of Microfiction, and Sick Lit Magazine, among others. Other works include a staged reading of my play Digging Up John Barrymore, performed by Dreamcatcher Entertainment, and five albums of original music recorded with my band Late Model Humans.
