Domestic Work, 1937
All week she's cleaned
someone else's house,
stared down her own face
in the shine of copper--
Letter Home
- New Orleans, November 1910

Four weeks have passed since I left, and still
I must write to you of no work. I've worn down
Here, she said, put this on your head.
She handed me a hat.
you 'bout as white as your dad,
and you gone stay like that.
Vespertina Cognitio
Overhead, pelicans glide in threes—
their shadows across the sand
Theories Of Time And Space
You can get there from here, though
there's no going home.

Rich and intriguing poetry, spanning across geographical envelopements of her mind while as well haunting the ghosts of a complex historical past. Beautiful poetry.
