Yesterday. . .
Yesterday, Lex was buried.
I stayed away from the topic
because there were chores,
that needed doing around here
and if I'd given myself over to grieving,
I couldn't have gotten around to
taking care of them. . .
and these chores needed taking care of.
Besides, there were hundreds of others
thinking of him, mourning his loss.
I would have been just another lost soul. . .
wandering in the wasteland.
