I feel your humming.

Though you are far,

the vibrations of your present loss


I am humming

remembering you




wrapped around

my memories

squeezing like

a garbage compactor


as it crushes

moments into

    Love the use of the garbage compactor imagery. Catches you by surprise but relays the uncomfortable & undesirable nature of the situation well.

    The part about memories squeezing can be felt physically as a hug. Good stuff. Thanks for writing.

  4. As always, such a beautiful remembrance!
