We sat listening
on the frayed white couch
to the trees rustle
the imitation of rain
didn’t wish to impose
simply propped its feet
on the sensation of
cinnamon apple tea
cleansing the sinuses
like a house warming
gift for the stubborn
recollections that refuse
to accept the offering of a home

::

We talked about everything
held close to convulsing
chests behind closed doors
when tears and blood taste
the same and the words
we’d never intended
to say beckon themselves
out of the hollow
recesses where coping
mechanisms were traded
like dry cleaner recommendations.

::

I wish I’d written
a eulogy instead
of the memoir I had
shied away from
claiming for we were
not tragedies but the pain
crashed into our pretenses
because in that moment
we were just two daughters
grieving the loss
of the greatest women in our lives.
