Apologies to Emily

If Emily was Online

how sweet to wait-
in this special place--
mouse in hand-
keyhoard ready-
I stir the keys
no email yet--
the box lies empty
beneath my hope-
to know the words
lie just outside my reach
all of heaven
waits in a keystroke
all of that other place-
with you not here-

  1. I have been in her Amherst home. She could've written this; might've, given the circumstance.

    Perfect homage, that last quartet.
