Rachel

That first year suicide /
a girl I did not know /
touches me as I could not be
touched / by closer tragedies /
I picture her not daring / not
asking / her silent pain /
I picture her lying / beyond
their words
if she had spoken /
if she had known / one
look / I would have reached
out / touched her as she
can not be touched / that
first year suicide / a girl
I can not know.
