sometimes



the nothing becomes a something
and
sometimes a something is almost too much to bear
so one wants to stay in the nothing


there was a house fire last evening
six houses up the road from us
it is the house of a friend of ours
a friend we have had for a very long time

my friend didn't make it out of the fire
and her husband is in the burn unit in Richmond Va
with 3rd degree burns
and a broken heart

while we were having dinner
my friend died
and
 I can't understand
