demi poem #4

so this isn’t a poem
you may be weary
of grief but saturday
was damaris’s birthday
her sisters and her
nephews in the west
built a big bonfire
burned the clothes
she died in burned
a slice of the special
cake we always make
for family birthdays
reminisced by the fire
about times they’d had
with demi her unique
ways they then took
the ashes along with
demi’s own ashes to
the beach where the
nephews waded into
the surf and mixed
them all with the sea
the only eulogies were
goodbye demi and
we love you demi
I did not go but my
heart was there my
heart with a big hole
in it a hole lapped
round with others’ love
