Kaminsky (posted to Facebook on 3/2/09)

*thanks to Ilya Kaminsky for inspiring this poem. based on a true story.*

are you a Poet?

as You asked,
Your memories
of Odessa danced
vividly in my ears.


You saw me
utter a secret i've
since exiled
myself from.

that day
You saw my
soul speaking
and answered
with Your
hastily-scrawled hand.
