12 steps to disrememberingStep 1: lay down a strand of hairMore Like This
I cut off to keep beside.
On step 2 drop three tears -
For love, for grief, for pointless pride.
Step 3 is where the heart resides
Gently sleeping in its nest.
Step 4 is for the hand I held
But never gave me loving touch.
Step 5 will hide the lips that yelled
But kissed me just as much.
Steps 6 through 12 will house the rest -
The fear, the anger and lament.
Once all is done and all is clear,
I'll bid farewell with wet cement.
