Dear Seth
You have been disappointed
in love and I am sorry
   that to hope
for and to imagine love is to possess it
however briefly
      so that when the picture
does not come clear one experiences
not only sadness but loss
  We had an appointment
These dumb risks of ours these dumb arms
How aversion is the urge to look away
I know the general uselessness
of looking to words for answers
    but on occasion
the cast spell works
so we still mutter
what we can
We stutter Try
Dear Seth
