He remembers how grief

enveloped his mind,

went burrowing in with a tear;

went digging in

to the center of his sight 

and stayed there.

A blot. An obstruction.


He didn’t notice it shrink,

not at first,

but rather felt the tweak

at the corner of his lip,

twitch, twitch,

until it slipped

into, unintentionally,

a smile.
