She is Kaci

 

Years
the war raged, the sky grew
dark, our…
minds grew darker
success
failures, a back
and forth dance of…
–I can’t say it–
but
the battle ended a few
hours ago, there
wasn’t much to say, not
a lot of noise…the doctors walked
away
the nurses put away medical things,
straightened the bed sheets
plumped her
pillow
her tears were dry
eyes closed
where there was stress lining
her brow
it was gone, she
was gone…but
not…gone
in every mind, in every
memory
that was lucky, that was
joyously and
fucking privileged
to have been witness, to have
been a party to her
life
there she was, there
there
there
there
and
there
she is…
I was lucky, no I AM
goddamn lucky
that
there
she is.
