*for my mother, Marlene Katherine Gokenbach (August 28, 1931-April 4, 2019*
my glass of wine sanctifies time
but can’t bring you back
again I open the window
as a sign for both of us
across the yard a dog barks
and from the pine tree a crow answers
evening becomes morning
and my sense of you deepens
