There is No You There (4/11/2013)

As Gertrude said,
There is no there there.
As I say,
There is no you there,
There is no you,
And I don’t know which you that I wish for,
Or if there is any you at all that I wish for.

There was a you there,
She is gone,
That you, no longer desired,
A cloistered feeling,
In check, in check.

There is no there there,
No you there,
Empty space of memory,
Not nothing, but packed with floating dust.
