Long Distance


You send me a Snapchat photo

of you posing in the black peignoir you purchased

from a store on the Champs-Elysees, two days prior.


I’m on my own chain-smoking

sat at my desk gazing at your vacant lot.

I see the spines of the books

piled high on the bureau where you used to write,

concentrate and read:

Carson, Nin, Beauvoir, Cixous and Benson…

My gullet burns as I gulp the Pernod

that too often fills my clay tumbler cup.


I suspect you’ll be dancing soon,

in some hipster bar down a back-alley,

more seductive than Salome; you’ll sway

and allure every set of dilated eyes.

I imagine in the corner of the room

a rogue who plays a blue guitar,

his fingers will slip and slide

over nylon strings

as everyone begins to undress.
