homeland (formerly 36jar)

by Azure D. Osborne-Lee

Wide skirt
won't apologize for anything

What for?

Why should s/he?


Long silence rolls

(Why for?

Why wound s/he?)


Warm hands held

empty jar
poured out last of life

Wind whistling through middle

gap singing so loud

Long lost dreams of wife

And salt water


(Hold tight)


Breathe now

Don't call s/he name

Speak no sound words
no cough
no rattle
no more



Long silence rolls

Sweep away what s/he can

Wide skirt

and sorry for nothing

Once found
