The curtain call

Between the curtains
I stand, my hands together
Brown like a clay dove 

A messenger they
Hold my letter to you written 
In scratchy black ink

Trostsky. These flowers
Piled into a sleepy mound
Pink, yellow and peach 

These flowers are like
Our love, no longer alive
But no less lovely

I blossomed beneath
your steady blue gaze searching
for an answer to

For an answer to
lifes many big questions I
hope you've found answers 
This is our farewll
The velvet curtain closes
Love. Always. Frida.

* Haiku based on "Between the curtains", a painting by Frida Khalo
