another attempt

today may be the day
I pull out leather-bound pieces of paper
once kept deep in the bottom drawer

it’s time I showed you
dried flower in between the pages
(do you remember how fresh it was
the day you gave it to me?)

beneath the moonlight I will read to you
the words penned on pieces of paper
this time I promise
(yes, again)
I’ll finish reading
an entire poem
without breaking down


written for mayfalls 20/31, “leather bound”
