approaching the first day of August

my God the summer's half over already

wasn't it just mere hours ago

we sat at an outdoor cafe

in the night of the longest day

drinking and laughing

and mere minutes since we sat

a deathwatch for a dying relative

stricken with pancreatic cancer

quickest and most deadly of cancers

a death sentence for its unscreenability

until too late...and mere seconds since

the middle of July saw another turn of fortune

to the good? I understand nothing

as time dissolves and there is only now....
