A woman standing alone in a
swamp and she lets her hand fall from
her mouth like it is the last leaf
from a tree in autumn and the cigarette
ash mixes with the oil and her people
have traveled so far and there are still
ten generations until they
can reach their potential and the
willows on the
side of the pond are charcoal drawings,
sketched when she closes her eyes.
