Christy Leigh Agrawal

last week’s obituary

why now do you speak

of the man who threw himself

off the bridge near your town

hitching yourself to the cosmic tail of his rippling

deliverance into the river

like you might be a fisherman or

God, maybe

don’t you know that

if you wait too long you never fall

asleep feeling full
