Heart to Heart

Personism has nothing to do with philosophy, it's all art. ~Frank O'Hara

I cancelled my phone, my internet service, and the mail. I painted out the house numbers nailed to the porch and pulled down all the shades. I bought a pigeon.

no metaphors
our meanings pass directly
poetry, narcotic
between us, you and me

no different
than silence, though, a hint
no one admits
how the open ear, how
the heart is listening
