My Alphabet

There is something missing
From my alphabet
Like the black hole of an O,
The I that misses a dot
Or a T that’s not together if it doesn’t have  a cross.
There’s something missing
From my alphabet
Like the feel of an X pressed to my lips,
As the lost Zs of dreams fade at dawn
Where the rain of consonants
Fall like jokes
When only a vowel will do
To complete my lover’s alphabet
For a Q that’s missing…
