Yesterday

Yesterday

the lilac was carried on a warm june breeze

through the west window of the room beyond which was the water

now to her face

to the wooden floor of an old dining room she did fall

now to her stomach

now to her chest

now to her face

rolled did she trailing blood to avoid another

now to her back another blow fell

for an hour or more it went on

she is old now and perhaps she has forgotten

he remembers that it did not happen

I remember that yesterday the lilac was carried on the warm june breeze
