"May you be in heaven a full half hour before the devil knows you're dead." - Irish Drinking Toast

before she died, she was
thick-of-december exhausted,
spread across my mother's sofa
like snow across a dying field,
crystal pale
and melting, sinking into the frozen ground
like her bones were heavy
with death, or just

too much life.
