Leah Fritz (1931 - 2020)


End Game

It’s been a party. That I know
                now that it’s nearly over.
We promised we’d leave together.
                Fall out of a plane
                                holding hands. Jump
                from one of the towers.
                                                                                   No chance.
You had your bit of surgery,
I’ve something in my blood.
                                                                 We’ll go our
separate ways, one before.
                                                  The other
                                                                                   at last.
