Writers' Showcase

by Michael C. Keith

Everyone becomes a “was.”
It’s how we all end up.
Our forever and eternal status,
Just a memory to those we knew . . .
Jim was such a nice guy.
He was a real gentle person.
I think no one was as kind as Jim.
He certainly was there for me.
I was thinking of him the other day.
So was I, in fact.
It was so sad to see him pass.
Was that a year ago?
Hi Bill. How are you?
We were talking about old, sweet Jim.
Oh, him. He was such an ass!
