Janet Kuypers
(poetry converted to prose)

    everything about you now is a poem.
    i think of how you’d make a face at the camera before we’d put on our little show for no one.
    i think back to all the music we made. (you were the first, you know.)
    everything about you now is poetic.
    we’d sit on the phone coming up with ideas... you’d tell me ridiculous stories and i’d listen, laugh.
    i treasure these memories now. they’re permanently etched in my mind and i swear, i won’t let them go.
    i want the world to know of you and me... but they won’t understand. they won’t get what we had.
    no one will.
