Patience

by James Morehead

empty shoes
on my doorstep
i try them on
and my brother
and my friend
                      Patience
i let her keep them

silk gloves
hidden in the backyard
by the garden
under mother's carnations
sister's never seen them
Patience
               loves them

holding cool cocktails
                                   in jet black hands

empty clothes
                       by my bedside
shoes overturned
silk gloves inverted
and
Patience by the door

Next in Pony Ride in the Sky
