her practiced smile
tied into place
by the taut strings
of men’s compliments

the parking lot
becomes a cemetery:
she places flowers on Mom’s car
as it gathers dust.

is a reminder of
the house they never bought,
the kids they never had

following his sudden death,
she keeps his ragged slippers
lined up next to their bed.

but she’s seen the damn book
he’s been working on for years
