The Cherita, October 2020

Issue: "an old sadness"



a cloak of clouds

draped across
my shoulders

I wander
these ancient hills
that loved you


my father's shape

a small snowdrift
in this hospital bed

he opens his eyes
and calls me
by my childhood name


sea nymphs

I listen
to soft whisperings

inside
the pink nautilus
of your ear
