she held winter
in her apron –
snowflakes on a string
a touch of something
she restored
seeds of revolution
weary wicked vine –
she bit her lips
whene’er she willed
for more
of distances
too fragile –
love where weeds permit
roses pressed to walls
she walked beyond
what made her longing easy –
wanting for another
to wonder why
she came
