The eight semi-clear panes of the kitchen window

filter many unresolved and repeating thoughts

which drift soundlessly from my multi-caverned head

into the crisp, clear, breathtakingly deep, blue sky

that you always fill so completely

every time I remember you

and that you’ve died

But I can never figure out why

I know Blue

He sometimes comes

to stay awhile with me

When he’s around

I can barely breathe

He gets caught in my throat

or lingers too long

just behind my eyes

Pretending to be a friend

he steals clear thoughts

right out of my head

I then wind up in tears

I don’t dislike Blue

At least he makes me cry

It’s better than being ignored

without knowing

or understanding

the reason why

A mind is full of lots of things

ideas, thoughts, remembering

but just like a trash bin, sometimes

at night, it needs emptying
