So You Won’t Know

Everything we never want to say.

When you wake this morning,
I’ll have a note
on the pillow
   next to you
good. bye.

only two words
to tell you
I’m gone

I won’t leave an explanation
I won’t characterize damnation
I will starve you
of the simple gratification
to knowing
why I’ve left
There will be no foreseeing
the many reasons
of my leaving

all this so you won’t know –
I will miss you once I'm gone.
