No Matter How Expected

I saw disease kill my mother like acid.
No matter how much the death expected, shock stains the grief.
It made me stupid. I brewed a cup of coffee, and put it in the fridge.

Those around who care can give resolve.
Even my stand-offish cat observed, and fussed me her affection.
Here. I know your pain. Let me help.

it's my hands
my difficulty with melancholy
hence the coldness
fear in flight, god
dog sea
push pop
