Old Uncoupled Men - Oct. 30, 2023

I’ve really no business writing this

except to wonder how divorce

by death feels

our thirty years together

defined by everything shared

sufferings with sympathies

one cries the other hurts both laugh

and two hearts still circling

in the gravity of intimacy

pulled by love

so it’s hard to imagine

suddenly spinning away

from the other like a

shooting star through

our solar system out to

a universe of single stars

does shock slow to sorrow

when it stops?

As far as a new search

in a new galaxy -

how do you begin

to move again?
