For 'Tieeri' - Poem by jerry hughes

To: the death of a former lover -
whose tangihanga I could not attend

And I (?) Well...
I am bleeding
copiously -
like a continual
heavy downpour
of rain
And...and, as
far as I can
make out -
the 'Sky-piss'
and its relieving
(- relieving?)
has no relationship
to my tears
for you...YOU,
who have gone,
gone, gone - leaving
me, utterly bereft...
