Poem of the Week


            for Irene Phillips (11/7/1921 – 7/23/2021)



when the heart breaks

everything hurts

my hair hurts


my face is someone else's ~

someone without an aunt

someone who was loved 


when the heart breaks, the fear starts

the fear, the anger (the unfairness!)

I needed you, I need you


her laugh full of mischief

holds me

in a glitter of love


much larger than sorrow

the lovely love

of peaceful Irene
