From Our Words

[for Andy]

I do
smiles;

I take care
and keep well

in this
palliative noir:

the balance
between
sun and shadow

and you
in my life.

I managed
to hunt out
wild ones

in the hospice;

in these words
you reorganise.

I will
keep in touch

and it is me
finding ways to

reorganise
past words,

thin, watery,

good timing
from yesterdays.

Slowly
the balance
is recovering,

an uplift
to have known.

His and my
words.

To live, eh?
Thank you.
