Christy Jayanthi Malar (38) and Rukmani (40): R.I.P.

tanktops at pride
fundraiser dinner pendants
subaru bumper stickers
massachusetts weddings
buttons worn to
poetry readings

i look at these
interlocking symbols

and only see
two bodies interlocked
in embrace
charred by despair
knowing no other way
for togetherness
to endure
