River of Stones Day 26

In Memory of WJH
Relevance of Relatedness

You weren’t really related though, right?
That’s what this guy said to me when he learned
Of your death, as if the fact of our unconnected
Bloodlines would somehow make my grief
More bearable, your loss, less important
His words hurt me like carelessly thrown
Shards of glass, like grenades, like hate-speech
