(16/30) Year Fifteen: MURDER



Sudden and unexpected death
is like a hurricane wrapped
inside of a Tsunami.

The gambit of emotions a spirit
goes through dealing with that
type of loss can stretch one
thinner than vellum.

The day I learned of your murder,
I played back the conversation
we had the day before as to
rewind time and make
the news untrue.

The next day,
I sat in class staring
at an empty desk
like you were about
to come in and sit
down at any moment;

it took some time
for the feeling of
slightness to dissipate.
