my frequency has changed

by blake ellington larson

i’m telling you this because

it’s important to honor
our passing ghosts

it’s important to follow their
bleak demise
like obituaries
across the pavement

II.

whatever ship
it’s sailed

whatever cure you had in store
i’m sure
it’s not been perfected

either way
to the brig the lot of us
i am sure
we’ll know how to swim

(2007)
