WHILE THINGS ARE THROWN HASTILY IN A BAG
if buzzing days
had not been sidetracked
by bad accidents
we wouldn’t have walked to boss office
confused by his ‘I am so sorry for your loss’
we would have kept on feeling lonely
for years but never seconds
there might have not been
a knock at the door
police cars lined up at the front
grief might have not been
crumpled between fingers
previously welded to coffee cups
maybe we would have still strung pearls
into a necklace of good moments
shining and perfect
as toys never were

maybe (23rd July 2015)
