Change Of Address

By Dónall Dempsey

You didn’t dieyou just changed shape became invisibleto the naked eye
became this grief
it’s sharpnessmore real
than your presence was
before you were separate to meentire to yourself
now you area part of me
you are inside my self
I call youby your new name ‘Grief…Grief!’
although I still call you’Love.’
