Death Happens Slower

Death happens slower than you imagined.
The green velvet couch he lies on.
The nurse and the doorbell she rings every day.
The same old routine stretching into

new life.

Months go by and your mother drinks herself
sick. Now there are hospital beds blocking
the kitchen, more nurses, more

time.

You are alone counting shells on the beach
counting cigarette butts and the wind
fierce its rawness circles your back
like a parent this world how it spins
every day like a parent how it makes time

go on.
