Will I also return
I was young as spring,  
and held to an autumn's wind  
like pomegranates    
hung from the highest branches    
before black crows hollowed them    
autumn flurries came  
with the scent of fallen fruit,  
piles of dying leaves,
dark brothers crushed underfoot    
to be shelter for next spring

Girl as Tragedy
She decided to be a tragedy
because it was more beautiful
than happiness.
Happiness was a plain thing -
ordinary and drab as corn or
her husband
falling asleep in his chair..
But tragedy was elegant - the curves
of her slender body sheathed in trauma
and kid gloves that went up to the elbows.
It was mysterious - black hats with veils
and notes from strange men pressed into her palm
at funerals.
Tragedy looked good on resumes and fit perfectly
on the small white cards placed on her dining table.
Her sisters could slip them into their purses
to remind them later of how she breathed
dignity and grace into the family name.
She could wear it with her grandmother's jet beads
to the ballet, their stark beauty
a reminder of what was lost.
And when her final lover came to call at matins
she could slip it under her lips
and press it as a warm memory -
wet and gliding over his tongue
as she searched for words
among the sheets.

It has been a long, long time since I spent any time on this site. But my creative urges are growing stronger by the day and this seemed like a good place to channel them.

Sunshine beating down
The heat is mad, oppressive
Summer has conquered
