If you could fold your soul like leaves
and disappear.

Coughing in the English rain
too pale and far too thin, living
on cigarettes and headaches
standing in possible motion
on this non-existent line.

The only thing you do
is what you have to do. The only thing you know
is that it will be spring in England
when you die.
- pg. 10

(And here am I also, sitting
in a Toronto restaurant, crying, Simone, Simone.
Here, now, we are dying
of needing each other, dear dead sister
along, alone, gripping electric-shock
