Poem from Lean House

The Daughter Speaks

I know a few things     that mother
is a crushed flower 

how desire breathes hollow as a bowl
does not conjure love 

that the heart is an animal
	curled in a cave

I know some things     ruin 
is a road

            a mother can 
be a road

in the winter picture
cold is cold

a little girl stands	shoeless
	my nameless mourner.
