time

she

cracked and
wizened as
an an African
landscape
sits
alone by her
dying
fire
her legs
staccatoed with
red burn
marks like ancient love-
bites

memories are her
drug

just as the addict
pierces
his veins
with the death-
dealing
liquid
and imbibes
its bitter-
sweet
juice
or
the
dirty-
faced chimney sweep
cleans out
the soot of
ages

so

she

is

alive with
Recollections
in
the slow grey
video
seen through Time’s
letterbox
-——————————-
is it
time
is it time
for the burning in the
flame

or

is it
time for the
letters
and the brown
photographs
-——————————-
her time is
then

now is
yesterday

her desultory
tears
zigzag down the
runnels of her well-
worn
face and

drip

drip

sadly

onto her dog-
eared
album of

lonely

spent

yesterdays

time
