I will never write

my last letter
to you would be
raven’s wings warm
from desert rain
enclosed in a small
white envelope.

i am ill.
my head hurts.
my stomach is unsteady.
the illnesses passed on to me by my students this year have been bleh
mainly flulike symptoms
perhaps some asprin would help my head.
now i’ve forgotten the great thought i was going to write about.

Re: my last poem and some thoughts
My favorite image of that poem is the “small white envelope”. That is good, tactile imagery. I’d like to get my hands on that envelope- rub it between my fingers. Ahhhh. Creamy envelope!
