Which?

The blip on the horizon

which slowly comes into

horrifyingly clear view

or

the sudden flash,

annihilation without warning.

My father lingered

for several days

giving his children

time.

My stepfather was

a phone call from the police

in the middle of the night.

Which?

The agony of waiting

or

finality without farewell.
