Girl At A Bus Stop - Poem by Leslie Philibert

A white dress
full of winter cherries,
hair curled with frost.

A carried box,
tied with string
and legends.

Maybe a modelled
sister, or a ghost
from a playground.

You turn to
in all this road

and wonder this is
as gone as a finger of snow
in April.

The sky is hasty with
a flock of clouds,
broody, hanging.

The next day empty;
a shape without standing,

Topic(s) of this poem: death of a friend

    The next day empty;
    a shape without standing,
