a wrongful death case



the darkness of eternity
swallows up a drop of life


doors and windows
locked
a contact shot
blowback
a gunpowder star
not far from his heart
and his hand
locked around
the weapon

residue

survivors

no note
but suicide

runs
in families

death is final

a sign
a behavior

cracked paint
cold floors
wanting more
wanting 1963
when he could be
could change

vermilion flowers

spread across his chest

may he rest

born under
a lethal star

blown into a galaxy

faraway
