POEM: letter to [ ]

letter to [ ]

I send you incomplete truths
little notes that don’t say
everything I’d like them to

there’s something about you
there has been ever since that first
spring day in New York City

since then I’ve been listening
inspired by the strong and selfless way
you move through the world

I think you’re one of the most
beautiful women I’ve ever seen
but there’s no way to say that

and no point in saying it anyway
not from all the way down here
where I didn’t even wear a coat today
