The death of a loved one and the idea there is no other, or at least the idea the other is unknowable, is an odd idea awakening me. A bed no more mine than its owner’s rests below me. A wooden ceiling, to which I think deserves credit for everything I have ever written, rests above me, and while I’m giving it qualities of a living thing, I will say it ponders, too.
