  • Men and women will
    write of Patricia and moan.
    She speaks, She whispers.

    A coarse grain of wool
    trapped under her eyelid
    when she says farewell.

    Midnight strikes her wrist
    leaves a bruise and a blue scar
    like a lightening crash

    Her feet compel to
    leave behind concerns while her
    toes are in cement

    Men and women will
    sing of Patricia and laugh.
    She remains. She's quiet.
