Against Loneliness

I married my brother's widow,

How depressing.

Aged 76

And still getting his hand-me-downs.

In some religious teachings such practice is encouraged where the widow is childless by the deceased.

A good reason to reject such nonsence. At least at that age there should be little expectation of intimacy, a relief I'm sure.

A brief lament. As aspect of life to be reflected on seeking out the good and contemplating on the other.
A profound statement in poetic form. This will stay with me.
Thank you,
