She wraps her child
in the old, soft mantle
soft murmurs in the dark
don’t enlighten me
they leave me fumbling
for something real to grasp
The marbles roll
on a patch of dirt–
shine in the afternoon sun.
I carve a piece of blue sky
for the dark days ahead
the afternoon s t r e t c h e s us
on the sidewalks
