Tough Luck

Photobucket
“Antepasados” by Maria Castro, Riverside Art Museum, Riverside, California
 


I thought it would amuse you
To know that I am dead;
In life you never loved me,
You never shared my bed.
 
But now that I am wasted
And nothing but a bone,
You think that I’m to die for—
Tough luck! You’re all alone!

yet we are near as weeping
or the breath of God…
