NaPoWriMo: Shafer April 15th PM

Good Night Ben & Kay Lee

Everyone's married now;
weddings are for everyone;
like funerals, weddings are
more for the survivors;
y'all were already married
long before any of us knew --
before you even knew you.

There's a little more hope
in the world now, loved ones
hope more easily to see again
other loved ones, and some
of us will hope to see
our loved ones soon
in the first place.

Good night Kay Lee
and Ben, good luck
and all the best.

“Prophets”

we knew
how everyone
we knew

would live
lives they
would live

only now
we regret the talk
only now

that would have set it right
or
that would have set it right

for awhile
we enjoyed it
for awhile

we pat ourselves on the back
for our predicative powers. Now
we pat ourselves on the back

for the future
and shake our heads
for the future.
