Untitled.

You died the other day
on the 40th anniversary
of your birth
you selfishly passed away
and left me alone.

I lay on the ground
on the carpet
clutching my heart
and wailed
I was terrified
sure
I knew
something
Jesus
no
now
I'm
all
alone.

My love
was afraid
and brought me
sandwiches
and cigarettes
and saw how
little
anyone else cared
when we called friends
and hospitals
and police stations
and shelters
and I asked her,
is this really happening?

We cried together
for you.

I tried to be strong
to think positive
but

I died the other day
do you know that?

And then you rang me

in the night

and
that
was

that.
