"It's about words, and words are all I have…"

the mother of all vigils

mother’s last pickpocket wore a black hood

he’d lived in the apartment unbeknownst for

eons  all succubus + dybuuk

 

mercy mercy me

 

the vigil lasted from August 10th covid riddled

until November 14th at 3 am  mother faltered

+succumbed

 

he was wily handsome  +Roger Mudd suave  as

we lay in various positions on her bed  mother’s

deaththroes  beautiful  +most treacherous

 

sores  +virus  encrust our mother’s lust for all things  life

today she joins her Maker  where am i going?  to meet my  

my     what’s his name??

 

the Maker of life  death  +dat udda place  where mother

will grace the halls  hollywood deathmask  firmly in place

but wait!  a tinkling of bells  a swish of wings  Mum?  Mum?

 

not a trace

November 2022      ..wait for me..
