18. Poems that never existed

He was a depressed man

in his mid-twenties

worked ten hours a day

lived alone, far from his family.

In his lonely room

he read some books

he wrote some poems

not many,

eighty to hundred maybe

concealed in a black notebook.

One day he died in an accident

his parents took his body home

the notebook was burnt

along with his body

All his poems

faded out of existence

along with him.
