Russ Rickey

a year of death and apathy

 

disturb moment 

how to catch forgiveness

snapshot moments wont tell this story


language fails 

last breath of water

of air

of old age


memories of breath past

forgetten

clouds of neurons fail to fire

or fail altogether

crush of bone and blood


fall

or a simple slip

not between words 

but worlds


how to say goodbye 

to those already gone

memory memoirs memoriams

so many missed


shoreline against coast

clouds on horizon

dendrite maps 

sun rises after sun set
