For Paul – 2 Weeks Later

By Constance Miles, 11/23/20

You say the grief isn’t like a

hurricane any more, with torrents

of tears shed continuously. It’s

still there, and you have your

moments, but slowly, ever so slowly,

you’re coming to accept that Tymon

is gone. It’s not so debilitating.

It’s slow, this grief, like slogging

through quicksand, motivation and

creativity relegated to the ground,

like silt clinging to mudboots. They’ll

have to return bottom up, when the

time is right, when the heart muscles

up or softens or both.
