Burning dead things in the concrete jungle
(for R)

    This is how I burn dead
    things. I have slow hands.
The first step is to light a match
    before you watch it burn.
    Set fire to it. That first
    step for me was to burn a
    diary. The letters I wrote
    to you. I had to erase all
    memory of conversation.
How handsome you looked in that photograph.
    In that light. I tried not to
    remember specific details.
Thought that would save me.
    It was easy at first not
to let the past linger. When I burn things now,
    I stay at the shallow end

of things.
