Postcard – Jennifer Patino (Thistle Thoughts)


There is no
or solution
when a ghost
hops time zones

You wrote, “I’m all alone,
but the beauty
of the afterlife
is that everything
is automatic,
and nothing
is problematic

A glossy photo
of a golden shore,
angelic scrawl,
in my head,
your voice,
heavenly southern drawl

were always
your specialty,
and I’m sorry
I can’t reply

“You never said goodbye. “

No return address
for loneliness,
no messenger
to throw
a harpoon through,

only a wind chime,
maybe white noise, a smoke signal
to let me know it’s from you

I am a Social Worker by day and an artist/writer by night. I use the written word in an attempt to make sense of the secret worlds and dysfunctional dynamics that lurk beneath the facades of our daily interactions. I am not sure how my writing styles are characterized, nor am I overly concerned about it. I am immensely enthusiastic about music and often connect better with songs than I do people. I also have an intense appreciation for quality wines and whiskies, frequently consuming them in excess. I like things that smell good and struggle to manage the symptoms of a life-long relationship with depression. So, why "grumpygorman"? Spend some time here and find out...
