A History of Zero- Steve Klepetar

A History of Zero- Steve Klepetar

“When I’m gone,” he said,

“my stories will remain.”

“When I’m gone they will

flit in late evening dark,

chitter in the oak trees, flutter

through summer leaves.

You will hear them scratching

in your walls, feel them as a pressure

behind your eyes.  In unexpected

places you will catch a glimpse

of me telling and  telling, reflected

in the windows of a chocolate shop

in Paris or curled up in the margin

of some page in the middle of the book

you keep trying to read, a history

of zero, that startled, open mouth,

that rabbit hole to stories whispered

in the dark you no longer want to hear.”
