distance

some days
any distance
is too much
to traverse
I can’t get
there from
here like today

the text from
one to say
the cancer
cannot be
challenged
any care will
be palliative

the picture
from another
of the dog
who has died
the dog who
welcomed
me always

the absence
carries like
an ache
I’m too far
away too
far away
too far . . .

Peace,
Milton
