R. Nemo Hill
Suicide Note

“Bring me a bucket of porchlight.”

Because there is nothing in the bucket
but darkness
when the young boy reaches the wood.
Because the old man listens for nothing
at his window
but rain falling.
Because the weed thunders
that the star
is good.

Let the bucket fill with rain.
I can’t explain.
