Death Opens 

by Jennifer Wolkin 



The day I found out you died

I saw perennial carcasses cry

& then begin to




from beneath a frozen patch—


I saw your reflection

in the resulting puddle


now a child’s playground

a place to play with
















Jennifer Wolkin is a health/neuro psychologist, speaker, writer, and mental health advocate. She is most passionate about writing at the intersection where the mind, body, brain and spirit meet - about the holistic human experience - through the eyes of both her own experience, and through her professional lens.  She is touched by the profound pain that is both individually and collectively felt, how this pain can displace someone from others and their own selves, and yet, the profound capacity for resilience, healing and growth.
