Hospice - Poem by Leo Yankevich

Dawn of pewter, nary a cloud.
A city dove alights the cypress,
the forsythia touches the moon.

Of all the signs of the zodiac
cancer rises over her brow,
wrinkled for thirty-seven years.

Then the constellation fades,
the sun burns the weeds on the lawn
until suddenly they are green.
