fortitude

disguised in the heart
a thick bitter reminder
of death’s companion

stalking the pleasures
this old soul takes solace in
during the music

does not divide her
diligence like those
who peck-look-peck.
Old wren is placid
as she feels the
first chill of death
gliding closer.

I wish you were here

I half expected
– I read Dylan Thomas at the funeral
like at every grave

crimson petals always fade

and I half expected
– your hello
