Last word

I just read the last word he ever had published,
found by his daughter, and finally
given to us
ten years after he shot himself in the head
with a .44.

That’s .06 more
than what I had in my mouth
but
I think the most important difference

is that I took my finger
off of the trigger
though we both have
more to say.
