Life is Strange

(for GG)

I shut the door behind me.

He shut the door.

He left the city behind;

wanting a new rhythm,

bridging 40 to 60.

Did you know it would be

a mild January day

when he walked his last mile?

I didn’t say goodbye.

He didn’t say goodbye.

I walked backward,

leaving it all behind.

He walked backward.

Life is strange;

that one day–

suddenly–

you just don’t show up.
