Blame me, blame anyone if it helps. This taste of dying is hard to swallow alone. Page 34 10 Even though the plants are only a foot tall, you, our sixteen-year-old baby, dream them ripe with fruit, the tomatoes scarlet in their fullness. And you come flushed from sleep to tell this wealth, how each night you root through rich soil to reap the harvest of your first garden. Nineteen years ago we dreamed your sister, the child not of our own mating, although we tried, who came to us, all rosy, at seven weeks and slept cribbed in the room below ours.

Page 35 11 Lunching with you at a restaurant on Commonwealth Ave. " I ask if you need money; you shake your head and fine wisps lift in the motion. " I speak of the woods I just left, but your eyes wander. She will marry one of these Boston men, I think, as I watch my neighbor, holding his fork in midair, still talking the Bar.  How can I tell you my fear for children born of these men, children with vestigial arms, two fingers to hold a fork, a pen, nothing more. Page 36 12 Spring, and you worry at the bee tree again.

The flowers blend, the leaves blur. My hand glides over the pattern, a river spinning. Her dream flows without sound. Steam hisses from the iron. Petals and leaves mingle pink and blue. Green. I am ironing her blouse. Only this motion is left. Page 10 Country Road in October The willow, still green, keeps this white house chaste. But oh, that saffron cottage. <><><><><><><><><><><><> Cattails exploded, their dignity in tatters. <><><><><><><><><><><><> All the corn stalks point east. <><><><><><><><><><><><> Red-tailed hawk drifting over what runs to hide in the barren field.
