31 Winter Poems: Poem 10

For Katie and Jesus

Here is evidence they existed:

the tilt of his head

her black-and-white dress

a red necktie

40 pairs of high-heeled shoes

love notes from a piano bar

a glass of champagne

a room doused with gasoline

ardor engulfed in flame.

Lives extinguished

and only love remains.
