For Jay

The sun is sinking under the waves,
Casting purples and pinks across the horizon,
And you’re laughing – sincerely & joyful –
This is where I realize I’ve missed the music of your laugh.

 ***
Simon says it’s natural to grow apart from friends.
I tell him that this is not natural.
This is sawing off your right hand,
Very slowly,
With no anesthetic,
but never quite believing it’s gone.
