friends pass – June 9

6.9.2014

friends pass

sometimes because

the cancer caught

up to them

 

some because they

stuck a needle

into their arm

one too many times

and the heroin got ‘em

 

some simply dropped

one day in the

library stacks

young and  surprised

at age twenty-four

 

but they are all friends

and their passing

is part of ours.

 

requiescat in pace.
