the neighbor died at the beginning of last month
Johanna M. Vining / Johanna M. Geiger

empty house, though occasional headlights beaming
you weren’t here when the eldest son came
said he was moving to South Carolina, told me I should visit
that he would take me to Myrtle Beach

told me how he lost 25 pounds in those last weeks
told me of the nightly diarrhea, of the calling out
said it was the hardest thing the hardest thing

the extra body that no longer resides here

he asked me where

He left.
I said
Nod nodding I won’t say anything
his eyes did the talking

rough ink to paper,
your hands tangled in my air,
winter melodies sung so sweet
from the beat, beat, beating of my careless heart

These are the places we dare not go.
