Importance (for JP)


My lover
is a suitcase
away I
left him in
Charlotte
when I
moved to
Honolulu
he stayed
to be home
while I came
to find home
his parents
he said
were very
important
to him
importance
is what
I’m not
one day
he’ll visit
and all the
yearning I
feel will wash
away
because I’ll
be
important
