Absence

For Kevin and David

You are there
But not like once remembered
Shape shimmering
Amidst the rolling fog
Of mnemonic limitation
As time
Like a boxer
Goes for knockout blow
And your voice turns rusty
Abandoned and idled
By life’s cruel intentions
Until all that’s left
Is the hole
Left behind
You are there
But you are not
