“Why the Willow Weeps”

Hundreds of confessions

and professions of love

etched deeply

into wedges

of century-old wood:

the original romance

that was never told,

             scribbled

on unprinted paper.

The willow weeps

as she outlives all

of her favorite young authors,

and stuffs the memories

                          underground,

keeping their treasured secrets

            buried.
