Bleh with Barry

Random with a cynical twist of lime.

Amore

 Amore

Wads of tissues

Smattered with crimson,

Laying in small piles

On the floor of our small condo.

The coughs echo

Through the four rooms,

Cutting across the emptiness,

Filling the space.

I wipe the spittle

From her cracking lips.

Her life is measured in

Bedpans and coffee stirrers.

Another cough

And her body seizes with the force.

I watch and get a spoon

Ready with more of the foul liquid.

She lies there, a clammy

Paleness against the scarlet

Splotched sheets.

Their washed in rotations by me.

Her emaciated face

Like a grinning skull

Show gratitude,

But here, I will sit till the end.
