the flu

he does not understand
he was the only other person in the room that day
but he does not understand

sometimes the sword that Death
wedges between parents can be grinded down
and lived with

and sometimes it seems to grow new blades
sharper than the knives plunged into the river jordan

tonight was a very bad night
but i do not expect that he will understand
