Sarah A. Chavez – Two of the people

Sarah A. Chavez

Two of the people 

I loved the most 
from the ages of 
12 – 20 are dead. 

This thought creep
sneaks weaves into
 my thoughts 
at the oddest times . . . 

Can I help you ma’am? 
a saleswoman in a mask 
asks from behind
the Amazon return 
counter at Kohl’s
where I stand, looking 
at nothing. I say, 
My friends are dead. 
And don’t call me ma’am.
