On Dying

Dedicated to Dolores Weiss (my Mom)

By Bobbie Troy   5/6/15

tears come

when you least

expect them

as gentle rain

or thunderstorms

time seems warped

as in a Dali painting

the days melt

and spill over

into each other


there are seven

stages of grief

but now

there seems to be

only one

and it’s everywhere
