I want to tell you
about my reaction to death
even though it is risky.

As my wife lay
unmotivated in bed
except to avoid pain,

her room-mate went
from her potato chips and lipstick
to oxygen tent. Then vanished on Sunday.

It was dark during a day that discussed winter with me.
I went home wondering how long
I could ride to the bus.
