nobody ever looks for. catalogue of absence: my parents’
CD collection, dust-coated, should probably hold a garage sale
and see which of my old school friends show up, accidentally
these days i’m in bed by 9pm.
the rain lashes our thirsting yard
until the dead grass drowns
into its second death and i’m asleep.

a girl I coach whose mother passed the same way,
as well as the mother of my only remaining swim friend,
and an Olympian whose dad died too young.

not sure we can call ourselves that, with our lack
of pantry. a few shelves of Home Brand basics:
my childhood. sometimes news in the morning.
