two late

“For my late friend” was published in Short and Twisted (Celapene Press) last year.

for my late friend

 

i’m weary of the euphemisms

friends keep saying you’ve passed

like it was a test

 

meanwhile most of you went up in flames

and we’re all breathing in your molecules

on a daily basis

 

our conversations       and your smiles

exist only                         in my synapses.

you were always punctual

 

so why do they keep calling you late?

let’s face it        you’re never going

to get here
