What I wanted to tell you, Walt Whitman,

is the earth has forgiven the the evil that was done here.

The stream runs clear.

The men are forgotten underneath small spring flowers.

A place as quiet and unremarkable as a hay field.

What I wanted to tell you, Walt Whitman, is

"I love you"

and this does not matter.

You do not matter.

I do not matter.
