he settles a kiss
soft as a white feather
on my cheek
the fatherly affection
I never had

  crows wake
and shape the dawn
this and more
add to the millstone
of your leaving

    he packs
to leave on a mission –
the magnolias
we will not count

his suitcase packed
he softens the blow
with pillows
one last night of passion
to remember me by

  he is now
where he's always belonged
by fields of his fellow Jews
and the heedless highways

at a table for two
a widow
takes a bite out of a crepe
and swallows the loneliness
