January

Two-faced Janus
Harbinger of sorrows
Memories of departed friends and family.


Why must you haunt the year's beginnings?


Birthday month riddled with deaths.
One by one the days arrive,
Each with a death tag...


Birthday month for self and friends.
Why must death drown out all celebrations?


'Come, celebrate with us!'
Celebration?
Not for this traveller; locked in an enduring embrace with her ghosts.
