April is Poetry Month.  We are featuring the poetry of local teen Jon Talberg.

Let’s Talk
by Jon Talberg

Let’s talk again,
Before the stars and the moon and ink black sky,
disappear, in a flash, of nothingness

Let’s not delay, the end lurks so close, so close,
Carried on the wings of the approaching starlight,
So close.

Let’s be together,
Regretting the empty years,
and the empty hearts,
and the empty minds that drove us to loneliness.

Let’s talk again.  It’s about time.
The end lurks so close.
