Poem as Estuary

A friend sent me a message that a young woman was found dead last week with one of my poems centered on her desk and I’ve been wondering

…poem as consolation…poem as explanation…justification…poem as map to a secret passageway…a shortcut…poem as suicide note…poem as eulogy…poem as promissory note…permission slip…poem as terms of service…terms of agreement…poem as summons…overdue reminder...poem as plea for sanctuary…estuary...poem as obituary…poem as personal letter that begs [Dear Elizabeth____How is it with you?]…excuse or alibi…poem as string around her finger… FOUND HERE

And now you are everywhere as you have always been wide open and spacious with light

The already somewhere else recognize each other in passing through the white space between words
