1

There is no sadness

but held in the bedroom of the

rented house from two years ago.

 

I should say no

definite sadness.

 

2

On the dresser:

a small sample of jasper.

Late summer, the house smelled of bleach.

 

In every corner we tried

to clean it of the day.

 

3

The telephone rang in the living day.

After that, the prepared slideshow, the

walking in and walking out.

 

The photos on corkboard.

The ordeal over.

 

4

The quilt stained white in places

from mopping bleach onto the ceiling

and not moving the quilt.

 

I could smell bleach underneath and

thought of the acres around the house.

 

5

Here, in the driveway,

is Celeste in her workout clothes.

This is the ending of everything.

 

Quarries, unfamiliar, not

just unfamiliar-

 

6

Home is over for use.

Here, in the kitchen,

we learn of a new death.

 

Celeste is polite and leaves. Acres surround

the house, protection from nothing, really.

 

7

In the living world I collected rocks

and minerals, and was interested in

telescopes, meridians. Hills, quarries-

 

the land at home, whatever it was.

At this hour, clean. Later, start again.
