reserving a room in hell
Over time, you experience these losses. But you never see them coming. They seem unnatural, but then suicide always has that going for it. No one seems to know the cause, it masquerades as a general dissatisfaction with their life. Thinking back you saw something, but still can’t put your finger on a fact, or find a reason. Religion is a barrier and no relief. “His soul will go to hell you know?” No, I don’t know that, and right now I would rather be with him than you.
impermanence . . .
a winter storm
passes between us
