salt and silence

salt for the taste of tears

silence after hearing

the news

I don’t remember sobbing or choking

though I probably was

everything was blurry

I’m sure he’s still talking so I nod

I trudge inside

a greeting

a sad smile

and a question

a question I always wish I would have answered differently

        “do you want to hold her?”

a shake of my head
