House Where Wisteria Grew

We couldn’t own ourselves, so we lived through each other.

When no one could decipher the speaker, we spoke,

Mom, come sit at the tablewith me, pat down my hair.

In the bedroom where all things

are said with a sigh, I do have more

fun—butterflies land on my leg—

and I can’t move.

The day I asked, We ready to leave?

She told me, Go, you’re old enough.

She was many people then. All of them, in love. [End Page 78]
