the poet says grief
Susan Williams

The poet says grief
never leaves only changes, it
waits outside doors, keeps a place
at the table. Hides in a high room
with mirrors to the wall, flings
from the basement to the roof of the mouth.
Whispers at windows.
Slips out with the smoke.
Creeps eave to eave like a grin.

Gathers with night in the trees when we
won't let it in.
