Christopher Soto

to the towns left without saying goodbye

there are boxes in the garage that contain
too much weight for one to carry on
a long journey. rummage through
their materials, some items will be familiar,
some will not. please be patient when passing
the unknown. many stories have been shared
between us but, even in these boxes, their
is still much unsaid; about how i wanted
to give you everything and take nothing.
