Rudimentary Grief

a process
a journey
a state of being
a way
a tattered flag
fluttering in a chilled wind
at the fragmenting cliffside
signaling drastic change
discarding outdated beliefs, stagnant patterns
melding tired laws, with unfamiliar truths
momentarily whitewashed with stoic acceptance
a façade of ether
imperceptibly, inaudibly, invisibly
time plus tears plus anger plus acceptance
all such aching nonsense, it seemingly becomes
a covert, bottomless pang remains
