why

when someone dies
suddenly
when they suddenly go
your heart demands a logic
a story
each fact to stack high
the vertebrae
the spine
a way to stand the thing up
the grief
to make it account for itself
to explain why it has arrived
in the place of your someone
your vibrant
booming
and pulsing someone
that one
who articulated to you
both your love
and your fear
there must be a logic
a way to align this new world
with the one left behind
a why
when its sudden
all reason is shy
