Another year without you
A poem I should write
In case my mind decides to forget

Another year without you
I mark the dates
In case my mind decides

Worse, to be happy
Fifth, tenth, third, time since we last,
Another year without you

In case my mind decides to forget
The nonaversaries
Where you aren’t.

for Michelle, on the anniversary of her daughter’s death.
