a new

anthology I learn

of his passing



his brother


for days



on the page

before me in

the old anthology



went for a walk

left his keys his phone

his pills



said yes

once to one of

my poems



“Is that from your

technique or the toughness

of your mouth?”



your death

attributed to




a collection

of flowers that’s

all it means



his last photo

he looks younger

than me
