The Fly

I wake
with
tears rumbling
         from my eyes
as if I’ve mourned &
Would that I could /

If only you had died
If only you had relieved yourself
Of this world’s heaviest burden

& you never heard a single sound
nor will you ever read another word
This Hades has become
the lava pit for them now

I am too kind
Too kind

–LM
