99 Days

And I miss you.

99 days

Since you left

And I still search for you

In the creases of my mouth

In every damn contour

Of my body

In every abstract noun

In every novel I read

Looking for echoes

Of the past

Calling to you across the sky

Where the albatross lives

Do you remember the albatross?

Hanging motionless

Like a limp body

Tied to a tree

Hey

That’s me

You never came

To see me

So I never wanted

To see anything ever again

The End
