Sarah Sloat


If one of these days
you decide to collect
your senses in a suitcase
I won’t protest.

Although you help with jars and zippers
and put azaleas on my table,
although your lapels turn back just right
and the color of your eyes
is an uncommon language

and these things
please me

I won’t go madly about town
in search of you
or waste my time
reading your old letters.
