Hey. You. My name’s Jason. Notice how I do not title my poetry?  That is because it is truly for you.. The title; but the body, this, what I create now, is for me. Maybe it applies to you, maybe not.. Maybe I include the word “you” and connect to you immediately. Maybe these are just words on a screen. Maybe this will change your life. Maybe it will not. Maybe my intent of creating this body of work is empty, but maybe it is not.

The writer, they are not concerned with the maybes.. Because the maybes do not exist. There is and there is not. Is there a reader? No, there is only the writer, because the reader has choice, the reader is a maybe.. But the writer, they are either there or are not.

I’m not here anymore. Now you are.
