War Poet.ca - A CFAP Project by Suzanne Steele

Friday, May 16, 2008 — Materiel

M.,

I still shake. this cold longing and fear a fog bank. and here on the coast it’s so hot today (30 C) and still I can’t clear. can’t feel heat.

days pass. then you write three words, take it easy. nothing more. sign, M, no x’s.

and W.O., love is a fucking desert (war) sometimes.

and I have no matériel.
