Solitude - Poem by Dónall Dempsey

You told me:

“I love you! ”

This sentiment has been
brought to you tonight

by vowels I O E U

& by the consonants
L V Y.

We’ll be back to
loving you

right after this commercial break.

“Preserve your love
in Jello! ”

Somehow it didn’t
ring true.

I turned off
the TV of your love

placed the cards
before me

got lost in
Solitude.
