Yours


I unframed your
picture today
a recently dismissed
employee
it remains a pause
in time a snapshot
laughter embracing
pensive seductive
I don’t know which
expression was removed

I packed your
clothes today
children going to
camp
memory stained
denims sweater
boxer-briefs shirts
I smell you in every
garment like a bloodhound

I tossed your
other things today
they’re on the stoop
or in the back like
stray cats
vanity beauty
pride contrary
