on the first day of

on the first day of
spring, you
returned to us,
suddenly
fatherless. there
are parts of us
that will dance
around recognizing
parts of you
because no one
wants to claim
a familiarity
to loss

the standard orchids

the standard orchids
they offered in
condolence is in full
bloom.
each bud appears
to be on
board, making its
seemingly windswept
way to light
with such
sad perfection,
a joyless
footnote
to the story
of your passing

i cannot seem to write

i cannot seem to write
a single thank you note
for the condolences

but can you please keep
your instruments out?

those cases are too
reminiscent of
his final resting place
