the giver of eulogies

by dm gillis

piano, please

and make it something blue
some film noir theme
that no one even hears
but will never forget
once they’ve left the room

see me
how I sum her up
she was lonesome to write

— there was no wrong exit
— she was fairer than spring

yes, I did not weep at her bedside
but held her close on the page
