Gina Myers, "After David Shapiro"

dear cloud, free from moral guilt
dear calendar, your pages worn
dear bridge, free from the heart's concerns
dear train, free from pain
dear passing, no need for a watch
dear address, words on your eyelids
dear lullaby, dear vase of flowers, dear candy store
dear sun, let go your winter coat
dear stove, free from yesterday's mistakes
dear fan blades, turn & turn
dear song, it's come out all wrong
