Death of a friend
 



EMPTY HEART 


IN LIEU OF FLOWERS
FOR THE DEATH OF A FRIEND
I GAVE TWENTY DOLLARS
TO A MAN WHO WAS POOR
TO HELP HIS NEED. 


AND IN THE NAME OF MY FRIEND
I DRANK A CUP OF COFFEE 
AT HIS FAVORITE SPOT
AND THOUGHT OF CONVERSATIONS
WE WOULD NEVER HAVE.


AND AT MY KITCHEN TABLE
I DEALT HIM A HAND OF GIN
I LET HIM WIN
THE SON OF A BITCH
I HATE HIM FOR GOING
AND THEN IT HIT ME
HE HAS DIED
I LAY MY HEAD ON THE TABLE 
AND CRIED.
