.166 day 143

two man made birds  on flights of death
two man made eyes • take one last breath
two thousand plus • are laid to rest

two worldly wars • two valves of peace
two million souls • to say the least
two million shrouds • drape those deceased

two paths in life • one road to take
forever two choices • never two fates
too close to now • too near to wait
maybe tomorrow  maybe too late

he wore this hat religiously.

his pisces pendant that hangs in my car
his lock. his scent. frozen in time.

(happy day of transitioning, daddy)
