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.
