we will gather at
least seven times to pay our
respects, say goodbye –

for both the dead and the living,
loss takes longer to sink in

between the flower

between the flower
beds and the hummingbird feeders
is a battlefield

of drunken, dead, and dying
bumblebees, we wash our hands

i fill these moments

i fill these moments
with sugar, enough sugar
to preserve them for

at least a decade, maybe
longer, long after we are dead

closely resembles the end –
we look for something
to hang onto – a harness,
a hook, a habit, a hand

so it’s true, we will

so it’s true, we will
die as magically as
we lived – let every

to obscure
one big lie
