DOORS

By Megan Patiry



My first death

was my first poem


A eulogy, no less


“Grandma was the lighthouse of

our lives,” I’d said


But the podium beside her casket

put a spotlight

on mine


The lights flooded her coffin

Accentuated my silhouette from behind

We shared that stage


•••


In death

there are doors
