In Memory of Poet Craig Arnold: Uncouplings

by Craig Arnold

There is no I in teamwork
but there is a two maker

there is no I in together
but there is a got three
a get to her

the I in relationship
is the heart I slip on
a lithe prison

in all communication
we count on a mimic
(I am not uncomic)

our listening skills
are silent killings

there is no we in marriage
but a grim area

there is an I in family
also my fail

Craig Arnold (November 16, 1967 – c. April 27, 2009) went missing on the small volcanic island of Kuchinoerabujima, Japan. He went for a solo hike to explore an active volcano on the island and never returned to the inn where he was staying. His trail was found near a high cliff, and he was presumed to have died from a fatal fall near the date of his disappearance.
