on grief: unnumbered

on grief: unnumbered


we didn’t do anything for your birthday.

well, we fought, which is, i suppose,

the most fitting us. did you


look down upon us and shake your head

or did you turn a blind eye

or did you expect the call across a landmass

worth two oceans

to not go through? did you


celebrate? we had plans for cake;

half-fulfilled —

without your haploid remain,

and wine;

unfulfilled —

because i lack, noticeably,

financial independence. did you


sleep? sing?

read your facts-and-figures

infographic, clickbait articles?

did you check your perpetual email inbox?


did you go peacefully?
