Epiphenomena

 
Plummeting timelessness:
when she’s truly starting
that apical moment of
maximum human sexual connection.
Piercing sadness:
eyes begin to close.
Memory is strange;
I was weeping for myself.
Someone was going to have to die.
Her whole life led inexorably
to that moment.
I was so sad.
Lying there, listening to her talk,
nothing else mattered.
I loved her.
End of story.
