August 21

They married when grooms wore beards
and brides were barefoot
no white pretence
of virginity for them
just promises to go the distance.
The morning of his wake
a flash of blue in a drawer
she wears the cornflower in her hair
just as she did to her wedding
when grooms wore beards
and brides were barefoot
signifying then the clear sky
that hovered above them
like an anxious aunt
making an exclamation point
now sadness
of her new life’s sentence of sadness.
