A Poem for Douglas

CM Evans

this was when i lived in a huge house

and you pretended to swallow your arm

as we sat on the patio at night

filming this was your new bride

your video face and shoulders lit brilliant

we had a fire nearby that i kept stoked

animated you are and happy even sly

won over totally by new love

i found the mini DV tape the other day

both of us are divorced and someone else

lives in that house with the pool

and the manicured backyard

i regret some things and not others

more is not seeing you for many years

and how we are friends now separated

and how delightful you were to your new wife
