My pinstriped suit
lets me disappear against
pinstriped walls
leaves pinstriped marks
in the air
when I’m gone

leaves him to puzzle over words she already wrote him tomorrow.

Your Mother, Weeping

The doll on her lap
its blonde hair gray
with dust from your grandmother’s house.

In my backpack
a sandwich of lettuce and salt
the sidewalk slick with leaves
