No Longer Light

Grief is the wind

a fifteen year old heart

as light as thought

when passersby mistook

flesh for summer peach

mind—abstract

before the rosy pinch

she took into a wedding

no one could explain;

grief is in the valley

grief rides the waves

grief is the wind

though her heart—

no longer so light.
