DEAR PATIENT | Jen Hartmark-Hill
You told me
Of hunting with buddies
In Montana and
Cool modifications made to your fishing boat,
But not about your paintings, which I first saw when I came
To sit by your deathbed.
Was it too painful then
To speak of the exquisite beauty seen
In a world that you were leaving?
