You cannot read this text
I am writing to you
I don’t know why I am sending you this.

I know
Right after I’m done writing,
My cat will leap up to the desk,
Disturbing the inkwell thereon
And all the writing I am doing now
Will be obscured,
Black among the black upon the white
Upon the desk
And you will not realize that I am saying goodbye
No, you will not know till the newspaper tells you
That I am saying all goodbyes
Good kitty
Good bye kitty

Now the splash.
