A Poem by Jon Bennet

The Things
Between the two of us
you'd think
we'd leave less behind
but there are baskets
in the hallway
full of  phrases left in their wrapping
suppressed advice
compliments of course.
There was the time
I didn't tell you
that I loved you
and the time you didn't say
“I wish you’d die”
along with the fern and goldfish.
It doesn't matter now
in that hallway
with its
opposing doors
we each took one
and simply
walked away.
Jon Bennet has  also been published in Red Fez, Zygote in My Coffee, and others.
