April 2 poem 2

traveling without headlights
the way home is a muscle memory
turn left, turn right and follow the road

home is in the cul de sac


bad news use to be an announcement
shared from one person to another

a ringing phone
and a Daddy lost

a morning bathroom break
and a best friend gone

but technology shatters the soft cushioning
of; "I'm so sorry but they are gone."

while your parents worried over telling you
a social media post broke the news of your friend's
chosen journey to death


suddenly I was traveling without headlights
counting on my muscle memory to carry you
