In Absentia


Orlando Weekly


Saw you shamble on by,
yesterday on Orange Blossom.


Talking to the gods.

Cursing cars and trucks;
who could blame you?

It has been six years
since your absence
in the office signaled
your silent resignation.

You abandoned
what you were.

Where then did you go?

  1. Talking to the gods – that describes the scene so well, and the final questions, a metaphysical rather than literal one. I like that. You timed the post perfectly, Charley.
