Four knocks

I sent a letter packed inside myself to avoid the postal fees
the words ran out on delivery much quicker than expected,the doors closed with me on the doorstep quicker than a door to door pet rock salesman
the outcome was expected
this simplistic notion of romance had to end here
there is no romance between the crazy and the wandering
just the square dancing around the threat of finding happiness within the downbeat
put it away with the old photos,cast it roadside
these crooked shoulders can not accomodate it for the night or furthermore
I know who they belong to
it’s your beautiful self
who does not
I pray
you find out
before i am gone

Epitaph for my Heart

New York,New York
South Ferry/Whitehall Station

When the 3:30am boat docked the passengers were shocked and horrified by what was found on the steps of the departure platform outside the terminal.Witnesses say it is common to see things dropped while running for the late night ferry but this was obvious it was not meant to be left behind so they alerted the nearest workers.”We had seen him on the phone for awhile outside here, he was loud but that is nothing to worry about around here …we thought is was a sandwich when he left” said a ten year veteran of the late shift maintenance crew.When the still beating and trampled heart was found the police wrapped it in newspaper then placed it the bin with the rest of the forgotten items that litter the ferry station on a daily basis.”If someone really wants it they will come back and get it or not it, happens all the time “cracked the officer.
