WHAT’S YOUR NUMBER? – A poem by Joshua Blackwood

Marco Marzonni


Let’s dig up these bodies and dress them in suits

We’ll sit them at the dinner table
And they’ll toast with cheap wine
To memories not forgotten

They’ll tell stories of high school and drunken nights
That time in the cherry orchard

Their tales will be short and many

I said I wanted to know your stories
Mistakes, vices, adventures

I wanted to entangle with you
And drink your everything

That was the lie that strangled me
I take my place in the empty seat
