Mana: 
When the wrong people die,
everyone else comes across
random memories: scrawled,
drunken ramblings, childhood
traumas, imagined sights

a hot day, bare feet in sand,
heat from a woman, extended
hands; nearby, ivy rustles
on its vines

a naked leg wrapped around
a soft cocoon, all those words,
fears slowly rubbed away
as they disappear into the sound
of the overhead fan

Who are all these people leaving
their lives lying around
for all the wrong reasons;

for all the wrong people
to remember?
