  • After you died
    I wished for a rainbow.

    after it rains
    my face tilts upward
    radar searching the sky.

    I've seen imposters:
    one on a preschool flyer,
    another on a card from Aunt Amy.

    I found one more yesterday,
    a drawing you made in first grade.

    These rainbows conspire to fool me.
    I am not convinced.
