he was a friend of mine


my friend Brendan

drooled out of context

with delight

arms flailed wildly

random angels laughed


my friend Brendan

touched with secret light


life’s desert landscape

powdered angels sung


My friend Brendan

trapped in broken cells

cancer’s fist

beat down his spirits

anxious angels prayed


my friend Brendan 

disabled all his life

loved by all

never found his love

shrouded angels weep
