Poetry

To Come From Nowhere

At thirty-seven I have nothing tender to recall
when I think of my parents.
Each of them a black hole
that I am too smart or stubborn to fall into.
No phone calls will come from either one,
no cake, no party, no way or reason
to explain away the distance of death
or dying or the kind of judgment that
ruins lives.
