Crazy Grief
When Grief comes to visit
she
does not leave
“There are things
we must discuss
my child.”

She takes up residence
she lays claim to the valuable
real estate
inside my head
she smokes out Hope from
inside a burning building
then she buries us both
alive.

Why are you here?”
I ask
“I grew tired of the
late night phone calls.”
is her only
reply
