One Day


                                                    ... one day you're talking to your dead mother

                        ... next day she's gone

                                                                                                 ... all your dead friends have moved on


                                   ... you're alone ..... no one to talk to but yourself

The Barred Owl


                                                   ... on my neighbor's roof / the full moon rests
                                             
                                                                           ... the barred owl / asleep in the pines

This Morning, In the Shower


                                       ... this morning, in the shower

                    ... my breasts, pressed against your back / you, holding my right hand to your heart

                                                                      ... the grief of remembering

I Might Have


                                               ... with clay from the high uintas you fashioned a pot

                        ... placed it on top of the piano


                                                                                      ... I might have broken it on purpose
