And while you’re at it, listen to one of my favorite songs here.
I am afraid I have lost you,
unintentionally, the way I lose pennies
down sewer drains and socks to washing machines.
Where have you gone now?
What river or pipe has carried you far from me,
to where fish will nibble away at you
and mice will steal you for their makeshift nests?
I will find others like you, and I may
It never leaves me, though: this sense
that I have lost something small
and vitally important
down the well of
space and time.
