The Gap


By Mike O’Connell

there is
a gap on the wall
where her photo used to
i’m replacing it with a
poorly painted
rendition of a rose
that i created
a thousand years ago
before everything and everyone
was discontinued
the wall is empty
until i plant the hapless rose
but not as empty as it was
when her picture
smiled at me
and laughed
out loud
