Dead Serious Questions

I always think about
what you’d do
if i died today.

Would you be surprised?
Probably not.

You’d talk about me
as if you knew me
so well,

“It was inevitable,”
you’d say.

Would tears form
in your hollow eyes,
would you cry?

Express any
emotion at all?

Probably not.
Would you be
cut up, torn to shreds?

Would you regret
all the things you said
and didn’t say?

Would you wish
that I belonged to you?

Probably not.
Would you wear black
and stand at the back

of my funeral?
Would people pity you,

the poor boy who used
to love her
once upon a time?

Probably,
for pity is all that we have.
