Beautiful. Short but biting and full of emotion. The lines really hit close to home for me. Very strong poem.

wow.

the only edit suggestion i'd have to make would be changing the second "your" to "the" in the first paragraph. i think it would add to the flow a little bit.

stunning work

yo there is a lot of ways to interpret this. Like, 'sorry/i lived there too' could mean I lived in your front yard in that grave too, I lived in those tulips, I lived in their ribs. Poem communicates a lot of loss and connection too. I always feel a lot of love in your poems. Like no matter what else happened or was done, there was love there somehow. (The angry ones not so loving, but you know what I mean)

could have lived in the house, could have lived in the grave, or the flowers or the ribs.  coulda lived a lot of places tbh the interpretation is very open

I love how much room for interpretation this has. Might just be a pet that died, might be something much more sinister. Beautiful imge with the tulips, too!
