April & Poetry 5

Dear Mother

            Mercy stays out late playing Texas Hold ‘em.

Dear Cynic

Dear Psychic

Dear Psychotic

            We’ve received your application.

Dear Beloved
Dear, dear Astrotourist

            You’ve earned your stars.

Dear Herb Ladies & Gemstone Gentlemen
Dear Candlestick Maker

            The night promises to leak your dreams.

Dear good scout
Dear aged sage
            You’re on my wit list.

(This post written after memorizing Camille Rankine’s “Tender.”)
