Under The Porch

Under The Porch , By Brian37 (AKA Brian James Rational Poet on FB/META and @brianrrs37 on Twitter)

Damn it Sylvia
You need to stop
Doing that. Seriously
What’s next? A stab?
A car ride into a river?
One of these days Sylvia
Arial is going to give you
Exactly what you want.

This is a very serious poem to me. Bittersweet and short and to the point. I write it because to me, her words means she is still alive to me, even though she is dead. So every time I read a poem I of hers I have not read before, I feel like I need to intervein and stop her, so she can write the stuff I am reading now.
