Checking In


Checking In


Having checked in,

washed her hair

and applied

the navy mascara ..

It was time

for her, to catch up

with events

since her last brief

departure ..

And for him,

it was an honour

to stop by

and to savour ..

All those words

she brought with her

and left there, at the table ..

                • L. B. Mek

                  reads like a dotting father
                  watching that inevitable, distance
                  sprouting between him
                  and that precious gift, in his life..
                  (such a lovely tone to your wording and rhythm
                  an echo of life's, unfortunate inevitable)
                  thank you Hyung, a subtly poignant read
                  (sorry if I interpreted it wrong my friend)

                  • Neville

                    Thank you brother Mek & both kindly and truly ..

                      I'm just an old man with memories and a pen 🥀
