“Longing for a Goodbye” by Ivanna Ramazzini

Longing for a Goodbye

I missed my chance to say goodbye.
Stood
still.
Dry
eyes.
Stood
there.
Unspoken
Words.
Stood
I, missing my chance to say goodbye.

This poem was generated from poet Derrick Weston Brown’s irrepressibly inventive creative writing class at Duke Ellington School of the Arts. Triple dap to Mr. Brown for teaching the form and helping to spread the skinny on the Skinny.
