big sun in an empty space

Big sun in an empty space throws cold light on a slackened upturned face. What made you sit down and what did you think, your best friend your lover your daughters, arms heavy and burning could you have stood you would have hurried home but that’s not how it works not even sometimes, in that instant sleep came to your struggling heart and you lay your shaggy big ol’ guy head down to rest, how many times had that head made me smile made me laugh so hard sometimes I couldn’t breathe, now I feel again a dumb loss of breath - I remember you. I remember you. I remember. Your house your yard your brother’s room your mom, hoop and susan and one long starry night throwing the nut under glaring happy happy happy light. I remember you and I love you Tim.
