Lemon Juice Messages

My departure will probably be
slipping out 
in the dead of night
and the traces I leave behind
will be lemon juice on a piece of paper
“iron to see message”
apply heat to decode
and I won’t mean anything to anybody
and all I’ll have
are a handful of experiences, lessons and memories
to keep in the inside folds of my trench coat pocket
and take with me
a map with instructions on how to decipher the future
and maybe this time
leave a little more than
