I’m watching “Van Helsing” with my daughter
Laughing with her ‘cuz the CGI werewolves
Look more like were-bunnies with big nasty teeth
My wife taps on my headphones
“Your sister posted that your cousin has passed”
She eulogized about his sweet, gentle spirit
About his certain place in heaven
(Place in heaven? Really?)
“Is he the one I met at the family reunion?”
I nod and turn away
A sneer tugging at the corner of my lips
My stomach tightening
Memory of him stirring in my brain like a parasite
Tonight there is no room
For this unwelcome guest
Cast him out of my head
Out from this world
He has passed, he is past
Now is my beautiful daughter gliding toward that finish line
Beneath autumn morning sun
Selecting perfect carving pumpkins
Gourmet frozen yogurt, my awesome gourmet pizza
Sipping warm cider beside a campfire in the evening rain
Giggling at were-bunnies
Moment by perfect moment, it’s been a wonderful day
All things considered

I get it. Even in death he tries to wriggle back into the mind, trying to steal you away from the present. But you don't let him.

just stay alive.
do whatever you need to.
you are worth it.
