In this bag

is everything I want to say to you,

how tired your face looks at 2 a.m.,

ghostlike and despairing of sleep,

your pained footsteps creaking

down the hallway to watch TV.

We’ve seen three doctors in as many days . . .

–excerpt from “In this bag” from To Sip Darjeeling at Dawn by Donna Pucciani (Virtual Artists Collective 2011). Published in Equinox and Tipton Poetry Journal.
