By
   In a waterlogged photo album lives a woman.



a curtain of soft hair spills down her back

and shelters bird-like shoulders.



Her arms are thin,

fragile as china.

in them rests a child,

a small cherub

with flaxen hair and wide eyes.



The woman's eyes are wide as well,

bewildered and shining

at the tousle-haired baby curled in her lap



Bare ankles are crossed

beneath the iris petals of her skirt



yellow fades into purple fades into green
