a face behind glass – June 19


orange jumpsuit

face behind glass

voice through a phone

to allay and let pass


facts. story. life

lines of least and

of worry. lawyerly

motions so swiftly

to bury


at age sixty two is

life now so over,

well life as then

known, but further



grace is so needed

to accept

and exist

to live with the objects

of life’s latest
