This Side Of The Grave
Here's a poem for today. Hope everyone is well and ready for the Pistons to hurt the Celtics tomorrow.
This Side of the Grave
I have resigned myself to always missing
Hank, my ex-husband e-mails me, and I think
that’s one thing we share after all these years,
our old friend, the one who sat in the dying
light of our marriage as we grilled cheap meat
in front of our apartment. We were young,
pissed off, wanting more. Stoned at his funeral
on my dead mother’s painkillers, I watched
my ex hold hands with his new wife, who said
as way of eulogy, He was a big man. He liked
my cooking and suddenly I felt shamed, never
having cooked for anyone, not knowing how.

Happy Wednesday! And much love to the Hornets who played their hearts out against the evil, evil Spurs!
