YOU COULD BE MISSED


YOU COULD BE MISSED
You could be missed.
Afterwards, she will speak
more than these centuries
of wedlock and its silence,
but you won't hear.
The words will come slow
at first,through her eyes bleeding,
resonantly, like dull hammers
where your eardrum should be;
you won't hear, I promise.
But she will speak, repeatedly,
will try to explain, forgive.
The time could come when
she will answer all her own
questions about love and things.
And, if she's honest,
you will be deeply missed.
But you shall never know.
by my late husband. Alex-- May 1972
