NICE STONE
(5/28/18)

she looks
down
upon the ground
that covers
her son

remembering
diapers

schoolbooks

watching him
drive away
in a car
for the first
time

he just
couldn't
be buried
there

he must
simply
be delayed
somewhere

she gently
touches
his carved name
in confirmation

still expecting
to see him holding
that next door
open
for her
