Big Guy

Big guy
brother of my love
I remember meeting you ten years ago in B’ham
you were driving an old truck
Walter called you Fred Sanford
I remember you hugging each other
brothers, almost twins
we joked, taunted, teased
but underneath, pure love
we both loved to talk
to cook
we were both loud
we both loved Walter

the last time I saw you
we walked around in your garden
you showed me the remnants of the vegetables you’d planted last summer
loud of mouth
green of thumb
heart of gold
