snippet of a letter i wrote you but never sent

“…that i didn’t really care about you.

and that’s wrong because i do care about you. i meant that every time i said it and i mean it now.

i care about you. i love so much about you. you’re wise. you’re smart. you’re caring. you can adapt quickly to new situations and people. and you can’t cook for shit.

all of those things make you beautiful to me…”

crossed

i crossed a white buck
at the train tracks
untarnished but older still

you’re all of the omens i haven’t decoded
and all of the feelings i’d have run from
if i was the type to listen when the stoplights flashed
