prose to poetry

drawn back to my old house

where her plaintive cry i could hear

so wept my heart, Ben's mom was home.

circling the block again. again

my house but no longer my home

OUR child whom we had loved in common

my mind, unseated, did roam.

I drove back
and stood I

 at the threshold of my door. 

where I had kissed his stubbly cheeks

funny what we remember when we remember,


ben, ben, ... i wept

we spoke together just hours ago, but ... 

you died in silence.


i am already lonely for you, forever.

So aching sad, Alan. And we do learn that the Empty does not go away.
