Poems of a Young Man: “Absentee Associates” (© KPKeelan)


The withdrawal symptoms

permeate me.

I am not willing to go without.

Something is lost

in the translation of distance.

The tendency is to ignore

all those good reasons to be thankful.

We respond

by pretending.

Let’s agree:


is just about everything.
