As a valued poet, you can rest assured
that the rhythm and echo of your silence is
of utmost importance to us.
We recently became aware that you may
have shared your blood and silence with
another partner, such as your shadow, a
falcon, or perhaps a trace of rain.
Please note that sharing of your light
may lead to unauthorized doubt and
the potential for darkness.
This found poem was written in response to Impromptu #2, a challenge from Collier Nogues to select a piece of junk mail or other bureaucratic form, remove the nouns and replace them with words from another source, perhaps a favorite poem. I combined a letter from our bank with words taken from the poem “Orpheus and Eurydice” by Czeslaw Milosz.
