white-brown squares

white-brown squares

twelve or maybe ten
children sitting in the trunk
of a pickup with no wheels.
ivy descending the walls like
a reptile. flowers in full
blossom, vivid like poison.
children walk by the base-
ment windows, squinting down
at the broken washing machine,
sofas, boxes, empty silence.
we walk into the new house;
posters of birds, tropical,
on the walls. a group of
women sitting in a circle
drinking tea and eating
bread and beans. here is
the scent of stillness, the
scent of years gone by.
the scent of a lifetime that
i doubt is mine.
