Pinball tears.

Heather Lydia Thornhill 1981 (Manchester)



As the grandchildren were dreaming,about hopscotch and party bombs screaming,
thoughts rung through his brain,
bouncing vowels off images of wooden trains.
Finally he could share his name.
Who he was, the enormity, the magnitude came.
So he honored his friend with a poetic game of chess. Then: "God Bless! She said and...
I love you more than stars point at each other; I love you more than pennies shared by angels; I love you more than jewel covered wings; I love you more than a world without material things; I love you more than a ray of light reaches heaven to touch gods finger; I love you more than beautiful eyes move the heart of man; I love you more than one broken heart never can."
