I won't
but want to
send you
a package of white tea
a small white towel
maybe a blank piece of white paper
where a poem could have gone
and a blank CD
where music could have been burned
a parting gift
to say goodbye
to have you remember
and maybe laugh
and to signify
the emptiness
that often comes with
moving on
and it's all about
packing boxes
making space for the new
getting rid of
what is no longer needed
or able to be contained
of what cannot be held
letting go
moving forward
to a new place
to unpack the things that remain
and place them with care
neatly, thoughtfully
where they now
