Cherita Sequence
By Cynthia Anderson

Crossing Over

 
unsure why 
she’s still alive 

my mother tries 
to imagine 
her death 

the missing peace 


::


her possible pasts 
keep her awake 

calling out 
to be re-membered 
embodied at last 

to walk this earth 


::


over her head 
a rush of air—

angling away 
the wide 
angel wings 

of an owl
