I still park on my side of the garage.
Your clothes, my clothes, still mixed,
extra blueberries in the batter, for you,
and mail with your name? Check the ledge.
They served ham and chicken wings after your funeral.
is this a bar?
is this forever?
I’ll put you in the sky for safekeeping
until we get our love
back from the ground.
