A Poem For Anastasia

There is a hole in my life.
It hovers and crouches

and then it swallows me up.


There is a hole in my life.
It burns and screams
and then it beats me down.


There is a hole in my life

which strangles my heart

as I try to fill it with

memories of you.


There is a hole in my life

which rips me apart.

That is a very sad poem. I imagine you all miss anastasia dreadfully. I know I do and I never even met her!

Baby Mao should write a poem about the hole in his smelly little butt.
