He's dead
As of March 9th, 2014
Two days before
My birthday
A Sunday that was
I text him Monday
Said I love you
Was leaving for a time
Would be back
Then I find out
You were already dead
When I left

Tonight finding two
Unread text messages
From you
I wonder what they
Good or bad
Surely not
Sent from heaven
Premortem, no doubt
Which means
Still alive.
