a wrongful death case

the darkness of eternity
swallows up a drop of life

doors and windows

a contact shot
a gunpowder star
not far from his heart

and his hand
locked around
the weapon

survivorsthe residue
no note

but suicide
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
