(poem) Solitary Mourning

Solitary Mourning
Her upstairs window bleeds darkness each morning
As sorrow’s suitcase is packed against the shuttered emptiness.
The house is freshly painted and clean against the sky.
A calm wind shifts through the trees.
She entertains upon the porch all summer,
But in winter no one enters the smoke filled room of her heart.
