Days are closing in
mornings darker
mist over the fields
rising slowly

The church car park is crowded
gazing out her window
she wonders is it someone important
she goes to the webcam only to
discover it wasn't covid related

The mist is coming closer
her name was Kelly Ann
her mother and father
sisters were all in the
front aisle
she took her own life
at thirty-five

An hour or so later
she hears the phone ring
her son on the line
crying he wants to come home
his friend nearly died

She took 30 tables
didn't finish the art class
they ran to the toilets
they all cried

She's out of the hospital
and back in art class
the kids packed her lunch
and will sit in the park
with her and cry
the mist has passed on
she will always remember
the month of November
