she lived like my wonder

she lived like my wonder, my clan’s wonder
she toil’d but laugh’d along our crook’d paths
much tears cannot undo this loss, our loss
‘tis like when the goddes wip’d her footprints
out of the eternal sands of our communal times
who has seen mother since she left my clan
so unannounc’d – she had put a mirage in her
stead – the old homestead where she dish’d
to every child is empty & calm & dead-silent
who had done this to us? who bemourn her?
where’s my resort? where’s is my soul’s calm?
