Christine Spencer Cortez
”1948 - 2022”
Death showed up at their house, an uninvited guest.
Unneeded. Unwanted. Unspoken of.
So they gave him their home and moved away.
No matter where they went, he found them.
Eventually, they gave him a name and a room of his own.
So he swallowed their pain even when it tasted like regret.
