You could have a big dipper   

GONE TOO SOON by Danielle Nouriazad



From the bar where

I’ve hoisted up my sunken

shoulders. Picked up my heavy head,


half-dragged out the door. I remember

Holden Caulfield, shot

in the stomach. Imaginary but


I remember dancing with a girl who

did not love me and your

best friend.


I remember leaving the party

early, letting my hair,

the sky, fall. I don’t want


flowers or to tell anyone

anything. Only to listen to

the zephyr of wings,


to gaze at stars and wonder

if you saw them,

too. You did


from a rooftop of your own.

Maybe we decided that

is where we’ll meet. There.
