The Gap

In an ideal world
dying would be just.

There would be strength-
to tie up loose ends,
to quit murky relationships,
to bring our loves closer,
to make the dysfunctional, functional.

There would be time-
to make sense of things,
to bring about perspective,
to close chapters.

There would be explanations-
conversations
confrontations
convocations.

In an ideal world
the end would be peaceful.

Words exchanged would tell-
where the money is hidden,
where the keys are kept,
what I really thought that day in June.
