Afterthought 97—As So Judged

Posted in sapphics by maggie on 2015/02/25

Some will say he died in a hail of bullets
taken down for having the nerve to love her
after she'd scraped scab off her moonlit mirror
        thinking to curse him.

Thank you, sir, for taking those bullets for me. 
Friends do that for friends. I will not forget it.
Let your name be spoken all honors stolen. 
        Thanks for my children. 

Three once bound together in balanced transit —
What conjunction promises restoration
cast aside like chance thrown to random violence,
        more than a good chance?
