riverbed…

riverbed

this place
of
your disdain
has
the name
of
home
to me
my
partner
and
i
have lived here
for
quite
some time now
among
the shrubs
and
cast-off items
from
society
ourselves
included
we shared
laughter
tears
and
fears of police
but
we’ve also
spent
her last
cancer
filled hours
here
i strove
to take care of her
but
cancer
wins
all too many battles
so
now
a memorial service
on these sands
of the riverbed
that place
of
your
disdain
