Limitations

Limitations

Silently we cross the carpet, my small hand in hers
The viewing is a window of nothing, he looks
Like a caricature of a statue based on a painting of a photo

“That doesn’t look like him, really.”
A sigh. “No, it doesn’t it.”
“Didn’t he want to be pushed out to sea on a boat shot with burning arrows?”
She smiles. “There’s no limits to our thoughts. We can picture that as if it happened.”

I look at her. “You sound like him.”
“I was his muse. He was inspiring. Perhaps I should be more now, no?”
“Maybe if we push him out to sea, I would not miss him so much.”
“No,” she whisperers, “I think that we’d be missing him more… we’d miss him more.”

She finally cries
