Death Note

Brendon came out of the lake a corpse.
Now homeless, Rachel is
loving wife of someone who has become
fingerprints smudged by water,
rigor mortis and personal effects,
and no note to say why ---
the streaky bacon in a packet of lucky strikes,
three dollars three cents, two high-heeled shoes
size 14, cocktail dress, marigolds, letter opener.
