January 9

January ninth was a beginning
That recurs till all my years die.

And each of my years, I will die
And each time I die is doorway

And each time I lie is doorway
And it is tubes and a loss of air

In spite of everything, because
A tube sticks out from a belly.

(On the birthday of my son who passed a year ago)
