A gray on gray sky
somehow makes me think of Jack
(so many things do).

Happy Birthday, Jack —
you’d have been twenty today.
I’m so very sad.

Glad the day’s over.
Gratitude is tough when a
foot’s stuck in the past.

I really miss Jack
on this All Souls’ Day. Sometimes
loss just consumes me.

Dreamt of Brad Pitt and Jack —
they were comparing coffees —
fair trade, shade grown. What?

Dreamed of plaster men
some of whom broke through their shell.
Jack was one of them.

Happy birthday, Jack.
A bittersweet day for meβ€”
might go back to bed.
