Another Time and Farther South, closing lines


... how you can lose so much in life
and walk upon the earth …
wearing all the shrouds of mourning like a skin
and memory like a stone …
alone for all the rituals of yielding, giving up
and still walk home
finding your way among strewn ashes in the dark.

–Brenda Marie Osbey
