chasm

Snapshot_031a

it will make not a bit of difference
but one day you too will see this
the boy staring at the chasm
wondering how it can be real
the first time all the more shocking
that introduction to subtraction
the impossible disentanglement
a future suddenly hollowed-out
an empty, tasteless shell
one day you will reach out
but stop just short of touching
knowing there is nothing you can say
and, inside, grieve
the boy who is finally gone
