seeing your eyes
seeing your eyes
on the inside of
my eyelids-
sun-drenched wind
brings a hint of warmth

discussion of the end
of our world
as I set out clothes
for tomorrow

although I see you
although I see you
and your ageless beauty
from a distance,
you've abandoned me
from your warmth, sun

tumble in the wind-
dancing dead leaves

the moon reminds me
themoonremindsme
the moon reminds me
quietly of our past,
the nights that
we planned our future,
not knowing...

The woman in the middle was my Grandfather's oldest sister. She was born in 1886 and died in 1971. Lived all of her life in Amite County, Mississippi. If I ever met her, I don't remember it. My Grandmother showed this picture to me today.

so many years
so many years
I've known you, yet still
there's so much of you
I'll never know, I say,
while looking in the mirror

peers through bare branches
and foggy breath-
dead leaves cling together
hiding the brown grass

as it sits on my lap,

written on a small piece

remembering the years

like the robin, I'm sure,
remembers spring
