I listened to a conversation on grief
between famous people.
I found their fame to be a relief
because they got interviewed, not me.
They were honest, forthright, true
to their experiences.
What they said chimed with me, too.
Still, I was glad they were interviewed,
They handled themselves so very well.
They had been interviewed before.
As I listened my tears began to swell.
That’s why I’m glad they were interviewed,
