the short answer is no, but you came here to read a poem, so read on.

the name dropped off the face of the earth two years, seven months, and twenty four days ago.

the name landed somewhere i couldn’t see.

maybe it was right behind me.

my mom saw it. my boss saw it. some of my friends could still see it too.
