My friend tells me

a man in my house jumped off the roof

the roof is the eighth floor of this building

the roof door was locked   how did he manage?

his girlfriend had said   goodbye I'm leaving

he was 22

his mother and father were hurrying

at that very moment

from upstate to help him move out of Brooklyn

they had heard about the girl



the people who usually look up

and call   jump jump   did not see him

the life savers who creep around the back staircases

and reach the roof's edge just in time

never got their chance   he meant it   he wanted

only one person to know



did he imagine that she would grieve

all her young life away   tell everyone

this boy I kind of lived with last year

he died on account of me



my friend was not interested   he said   you're always

inventing stuff   what I want to know   how could he throw

his life away   how do these guys do it

just like that   and here I am fighting this

ferocious insane vindictive virus day and

night   day and night   and for what?   for only

one thing   this life   this life
