Closure

By Maria Masington

her daughter’s

funeral was today

 

no one

else attended

 

not one flower

or mass card

 

no eulogy,

urn or casket

 

no candles

or condolences

 

no covered dishes

or spoken memories

 

just her own grief 

and shattered heart

 

a prayer for courage

and a sliver of peace

 

her daughter’s

funeral was today

 

while the girl 

ran the streets

 

searching for a 

magic-filled needle

 

to hang out 

of her arm
