To Max

I miss you so

We Are Growing Up 1974

My brother friend Max says
our hearts are so empty
we have room for everyone.
All of us, though,
on separate
Search For Tomorrow
episodes.

He loved Lucy
and wanted to start
a bowling league,
more for the glitz of the shirt
than the game.

Memories splash upon despair
that summer wound around us
a persistent, tangled vine.
For four months
I thought I'd never
be alone again. Ha.

But I am a jigsaw of scattered
half assed hopes.

Max and I,
so separate,
so much needing each other.
We wove a web,
twinding ourselves together
pretending
adulthood
was some crazy joke.

Whimsically nostalgic and yearning verses that speak to sensitive souls. Thank you, Kathy. Love and peace. Regis
