• To Nicholas From My Absence

    Spring 2021

    You are now you have been  you are now seventeen

    When I was seventeen I had the

    Year before met my father

    Whom I had known before  but I had been

    Kidnapped for thirteen years and thousands

    Of miles away  in nowhere he would think to look for me

    But I know where you are and we

    Know where we are I send you texts  and you send
