Meredith, 33, NY, USA
A rough start,
Loss, tremendous loss,
Two months later, more loss,
Walking through a Brooklyn neighborhood,
With one of my favorite girl friends, I say,
‘I want to live in this neighborhood and I don't want anymore roommates.’
We walk around the ice and slush,
Freezing and enjoying the necklaces we just made at a jewelry making class.
Dealing with how to live after loss,
And how to do it positively,
A little less anxious, a little better rested (ZzzQuil helps).
Yesterday I moved into the world's tiniest apartment,
In that neighborhood...
Ready for 2020.
