Andrea Horowitz

at my funeral, please don't read from fine parchment

letters lie 
between intersections 
of dusty drawers—
clenched fingers
crumpled paper

your ghost-writer  
plagiarized my air
surrounded by fertile
sterile sounds

their collision   
tonight     I sleep 
where we slept
hall lights frighten
I write 
our obituary
you won’t read it
