Except from” Girl Meets Class” by Karen Gillespie
My Aunt Cornelia gave me a book on grief.
It spoke of the various stages a person
had to suffer through before they healed from a loss.
It was a roundabout journey.
You might think you’ve conquered denial
and graduated to anger,
only to find yourself shoved back into shock.
It seemed unfair,
like a game of sorry when someone landed
on your square
and made you start all over again.
Michael Brown calls this the “emotional salad”.
