Bust_sculpture_of_a_woman_on_a_grave_in_Amsterdam by Natalie Maynor Cherokee by Mela

From moon to mountain
daring the lines

nobody’s sister
A tin box in the corner

where one would deposit
breaths held in bad company

A spade against the tree
dirt to cover the memory

of a laugh so much
like mine.
