he lights the sticks…

he lights the sticks they’d gathered

they are brittle, perfect now

they flame as planned

 

what is the occasion? she whispered

these were for emergency

 

i’m cold, he said

and leaving here tomorrow

in death…

in death your cousins are generous

I tell the smiling windowsill friends

their bones

have brought us through again

Two Horses

I watched two horses rubbing noses
I don’t know why
don’t know what happened next
the frame was moving

But something in me lifted, lightened
something
stretched back behind
as the train pulled me into sunshine
