january 15, 2015

today’s her birthday or was
it’s not that I loved her more
than I loved—love—you three
I loved her different just as
I love each of you different
and now that particular much
loved much valued difference
is gone except it surrounds me
in the very air I breathe and
so I play the stupid word games
that absorb my errant thoughts
just as she did to absorb hers
except her thoughts were demons
what can I call mine when I don’t
go to bed to delay dreaming where
all night long I swim swim swim
try to make things tidy and protect
children or fail to protect them
