I wrote the original of this poem on February 26, 2018, shortly after the actual incident. This is a true story, and a sequel of sorts to another poem I wrote a few years ago.
While driving home from seeing a performance of Shakespeare's "Hamlet" last Sunday
My hand went to the spot
where your hand would be
when you and I used to ride together
I found the program from the play
I had just seen with a friend.
