your mother's gardenias still bloom on the blue porch with the faded bench nailhead eyes staring out at the sidewalk baked into ancient rectangles scarred and pitted and never in all these years repaired by the town
you still live behind the blackout window silent as the sphinx sweating in darkness decaying in the stifling atmosphere of nothing changed in sixty years i wonder what asteroid collided with your life
leaving a cratered womb that swallowed you whole no one ever sees you watering those gardenias and you never answer my knock i suppose the next time we meet you'll be laid out in a pine box taking that secret with you ~ copyright 2017 RC deWinter
