A Day Poems Might be Borne

Widower means
someone was there,
someone who loved her
at least.
Widower means
someone knew
how her hair curled loosely against her neck
as she slumbered deep;
how her soul could be touched
by lapis lazuli,
and how the scent of ginger made her dance.
He knew and remembers
what songs made her weep
and why,
the books she loved,
where she came from
and why she couldn't stay.

Aw, shucks ma'am (shuffles feet in the dust with eyes cast down to the ground...)
