In My Weekend Coffee

Somehow,

somehow,

your death stays with me,

in my weekend coffee,

stirred with cream.

In my daily banter with coworkers,

my assorted binges,

along for the ride.

 

Maybe I am weak,

maybe I am weaker than most.

But, but I can’t forget the way you welcomed me into your home

and kissed my cheek.

 

I can’t forget that you were family.

Part of who I am.

Part of who I am every day.

 

And you are gone,

which means I will be gone, too.

 

I will be a stone.

 

For reference, for entertainment,

for trivia on a stroll past the graveyard,

a glimpse into history,

as the living dream about being

below ground,

loved, and KNOWN,

something rare.

 

A lingering casualty.
