"Requiem" For Dorothy 1995 - Poem by Mimi Eagan

I let you go before
we talked it through I didn't
know your time had run

out leaving me to live
with the uncomplicated unspoken
truth now turned

empty you had tried to make
things "right" between us (so like you) yet
I let the phone ring
and ring again
