Ten Short Poems Organized Around the Last Names of Vancouver Canuck Goaltenders, #5: Lack

“oblivion is my heart’s desire”

& the darkness in me
is the darkness in you

you were my October wedding
I was your TV eye
you were my Negra Modela
I was your Noche Buena

sunsets on an empty beach
brunettes in winter

never within is never without

& the darkness in me
is the darkness in you

without you I am no one
with you I am no one else
Satomi
