(a friend, his son)
“They said I should beam protons
into his brain
fuzzy with morphine
in the room where
he hung on shadows
of life, side by side
waiting for me
that I might see his smile
a last time.
Where have you gone beams
of particles or light or waves
that my son
could not ride you
back to this world.
