Little Letters
Lying close to the sound
Of moving ground
My little place to hide
A little world beneath the seats
The stereo beats
Like the ocean’s tide
Little typed letters, so closely won
That cell phone lit my burrow like a sun
I don’t know who you are, yet
But through my window, I get
It coming through in bits
Single words and typing fits
The mundane and profane
The deepest thoughts in your brain
(are hidden from me like this)
I don’t have your lips to kiss
But we can reminisce about the last time
It’s so far from there to here
Nothing I can do, dear
But that little screen lights the way
From me to you
So near
In a haphazard, fragmented way
It probably reflects the kids today
And what they’re going through
So I’ll fortify, my position
And wait for the next transmission
So please forgive my omission
Of proper punctuation in my reply
Little typed letters so closely won
That cell phone lit my burrow like a sun
The windows open, see the stars
Feel the air
The world is still there where I left it
Stay quiet and they’ll forget you’re there
