driving suddenly to forget one’s self
lights passed by
white lines brought her memory forward
the front porch light
lay open the house door
two weary onlookers sat bewildered
go in and see her

the bed was so high
sheets lay beneath the eiderdown in which she lay
breathing
tubes
machines
metal wheels
cold
still breathing
heavily
holding one hand
talking softly
weeping

jumping upon her bed
what to say
could she hear
all thoughts met
an intersection
she moved ever so slowly from my grasp
over the waterfall

the kitchen looked at me
they had known
all before had passed on
the clock ticked
lonely
one flat floor
she lay grey
go in and see her
