SHE DIED
(9/19/15)


he dreamed
of awaking
alone
on a cold
cloudy day

his first thought
was of the
snow shovel

he got out
of bed

went
to the window

saw
rain soaked
fields
for miles

trees
bending
in the wind

a few
out buildings
surrounded
by muddy
ground

he thought
next
of boots
for walking
to the shed
where the shovel
was kept

he turned

surveyed
the room

items
were adrift
everywhere

he was glad
that he had
nothing
of import
to do

no one
of import
to see
that day

he awoke
alone

afraid
to open
the blinds
