The Empty Chair ( for Amy & all who have lost someone )

Christmas is an empty chair
donning a dining table
during holiday—
 
Condolences haunt
as words, until meaning
fumbles between our lips  
 
We flail at half-loss
as razor blades, slicing  
inadequacy apart
 
Yet, offer them regardless
to salvage the wreckage
of our helplessness
 
Praying our brave dearth
proves comfort enough
~

Amy was my first cousin on my mother's side ( Mississippi ) whom we lost this week to covid. She was only 50 years old and leaves behind a 14 year-old son, and family who promised her we would go on, and celebrate with Love. Happy Christmas, People's of DU - be thankful if you have not lost anyone this year; many of us have.
