for us

what tears may come

when the talk

is already a century old?

the protagonists are dead

leaving nothing but us

to puzzle over their whys

& long gone reason wherefores

we cannot grieve

for who they were

this they did share

they are now ciphers on the breeze

in yesterday closed rooms

gone if not forgotten

& what tears may come

if we were to be bereaved

for us

instead of them
