Three Women by Christine Kesara Dennett


Lydia Armstrong

Oh Jesus,
Youre still here?
Id have thought youd
have hopped a train by now
and taken all your baggage with you.
Then I could breathe
in your absence
until I recalled how lonely
the afternoons can be
and how still and long the nights
and I could wrap myself in my bedsheets
and sorrow
and suffocate.
