last night we heard

last night we heard
that you had been long
gone – two-hundred-and-
eighty-six-days-gone.

this kind of news can only
hit like old news:

precise, factual,
final, historical.

but outside of
fact, the history
of us unbraids
with a finality –
each memorable
filament unwinds and
clings with precision.

we went to bed –
newly lost, old tears
.
