The Immortals!!

The girl in mourning!

images

The burnt end of a stick scratches

One line in the dirt: forehead, nose, lips pressed together.

It is a thick line, this margin

Between her face and what has become sky.

The line is charcoal on peach earth.

It is a fragile medium.

Wind can enter the ash, and lift it,

Lift this sorrow out of the personal.
