    Oh, Roberta, My John always knew the name of everything! And you’ve named the spot where I now live.

    Fantastic one liner. So much in it, what’s there and what’s not.

    Your poem was fun, for me! First read, I thought it sad and moving. Second read, I imagined that the person COULD be relieved that he was finally left to his own thoughts and imagination.

    I like the spare quality in the speaker’s longing very much… one from my pocket:

    handful of agates
    nootka roses on the wind
    this far without you
