controversy

tender is the moment, when

she looks across the room and sees

all the roses and carnations bundled with

giant ribbons and elegant cards, hand written

messages of condolences and fondness and no trace of the

controversy that littered his life for the last fifteen months.

the embarrassment and shame of it all

left outside, left behind in the parking lots like

faded beer cans and discarded wrappers.
