LAST BLOOMING

         
he watches her now
birdlike
on the rack
quivering with pain


dying


last moments crawl by
studded
with sharp thorns
on blooms bleaching white


dying


how will I go on
he asks
the women
(mother, sisters, friend)


dying


she’ll be gone from me
hordes of
nightmare beasts 
reminding me she’s 


dying 


she’s crossing the bar 
into 
forever 
one last kiss before 


dying

  1. Reminiscent of Lorca with all his simple precision. A beautiful poem Sal.
