Jack '63

We glimmer and dazzle.

Our happiness soars

past the atmosphere.

He beams like a

solar flare and my

heart is consumed

with radiation and warmth.

A bullet flies like

a comet, crash lands on

the surface of my

husband's skull.

His head obliterates like

a neutron star,

hydrogen and helium

splatter across my face.

My scream is

lost in the sound of

a panicked meteor shower.

My sun is destroyed.

I am a planet falling

out of orbit, falling

away from the universe.

Everything is collapsing,

a black hole consumes

my heart and the stars

cease to shine.
