rejection letter

written summer 2005

rejection letter

never late enough in the day the drowsiness
however it clusters between my throat and eyes

marks the afternoon with unexpected cloudfall
which puts the cat in a position to exit

the smooth lap where I sigh us through a Tuesday fog
out through the visqueened back window as I begin

the remote half-letter you neglected to send
until your unpleasant in-laws arrived with damp

kitty-litter stuck in their soles which suggests you
have summarized us as birds in a rainstorm or

wind through a birdstorm but not necessarily
asylum again from charmless hometown parties
