Never mind Eurydice.
She’ll find her own way back.

Write this poem for me, please,
with or without your lyre

and really make it sing

the words sublimating
off your tongue

more exhaled
than spoken

a whisper in dry ice
creeping outward

to the last planet

a message sent
from me

in case I never
make it there.
