in the past twelve hours

i've gotten word of a celebrated birth,

and two tragic deaths.

the birth is a family member,

the death, family members of a grad school friend.

and so,

life, as tentative and unsettling as it is,


in one way, or another.

to the little one who just entered, ash

to the two recently departed, ash
