ALREADY DEAD
(7/22/15)


she often
wondered
why he hadn't
been more
emotional
toward the end

she didn't
understand
that for him
the tragedy of them
had died
long before
the divorce

there
was only
some minor rancor
remaining
against her arrogant
and oblivious
attitude

he often
wonders
if life itself
is not
the same

past
a certain age
there is simply
not much left
to cry about

just
a little
lingering anger
to warm
the grave
