My growing challenge is learning to

Live with the evolving self I took off that

little shelf in my childhood bedroom.

It was easy then with only a brother

To argue over his share of the dark

With sweet sleep assured to follow.

Did my heart just skip a beat or

Or was it just that part of my head’s

Preoccupation with the dead?

Those gone away do not leave a

Litany of do’s and don’ts to help

Us navigate our own dark escape.
