at the end it’s all logistics
I remember when my dad died
I stayed with my mom for six weeks and everyday
we’d wake up at six am and work
all day plenty to do

going to the dmv
clearing out shelf space
giving away old clothes
sending everyone home
with whatever they wanted

it was all
sitting on the phone
pressing two
waiting for an answer
you don’t want to hear
