UNDERGROUND VOICES: POETRY

LINDSAY LENNOX

Dear Friend,

Exhausted by the constant
promise of connection
and the equally-constant
disappointment of distance,
I liberated myself from the web
and began to write you a letter
instead.

When I began to bore myself
with the admixture of
news from home and inquiries
about your studies, I decided
maybe a poem would be
a better thing to write you.

But once I had written
crossed out
re-written
and re-crossed out,
all that was left on the page was this:

i love

I hope you like it
I wrote it for you.
