the mother files (part 2)

May 2, 2007

in the darkest of dark nights

clutching your bible, my deodorant

and your reading glasses

you swayed

with eyes at me – with

your one hand

you said

in your nightgown

of blue, dark blue and white flowers –

who are you?

i think i have lost my way

(in memory of jane chauly 1940-2007)
