Bobbi Lurie

I am sorry.

dark and blue evening/ urban noise but quietness in the crevices of my thought system.

increasingly i characterize my life with a busyness seeking obstruction.

the text becomes part of my breath though few will listen.

hyacinths are a famous flower but famous to WHO is the question.

listeners are the fewest things. and the least.

i am later apologizeing for whatever meaning i produced in you.

this world of unstable selves, the way you changed when you weakness was revealed...

the caption beneath your portrait does not illustrate the loss.

Bobbi Lurie: My two poetry collections are Letter From The Lawn (CustomWords, 2006) and The Book I Never Read (CustomWords, 2003). My poems have been published in numerous print and on-line journals including APR, New American Writing and Shampoo.
