You lay awake from dawn to
Dusk
What are you searching for?

You remember the thrust of a lover
And your small born child
Blown into pieces.

You taste your tongue
Blood is there
The braces on your teeth collide with your
Despair
This soothes you,

You enter the court room
Seeking justice
The gods favor nobody
You leave,

Today you wore white
Tomorrow you would wear
Black
You learn to live with loss,

You draw down the curtains
In your living room
Like it’s the end of a play
This is befitting for your loss.
