Death's Sting

death's sting
came to visit
I wept

2-4-2 Poetry contest entry


First, let me tell you it isn't Tom. My aunt died today. I spent so much time with her when I was growing up. It was a shock to me to learn about it. Tom still isn't eating. The home health care nurse told him if he didn't start eating soon, his body would start absorbing muscle and he wouldn't be able to walk. His blood pressure was too low yesterday which makes me fear he's shutting down. He hasn't gone this long without eating before. I bought a couple of krystal burgers today and I'm hoping he'll eat those. I have been in the room three times today to check up on him.

Thank you for your picture, curly
