In Her Absence - Poem by Nassy Fesharaki

In her absence

Unlike many
Did not step into an unknown hoping a possible known

Surface of water; no breeze

Poverty's mushroom
Fabricated wet shades in shadow

Under Life-Support for days
Surrendered she

Is relieved;
No pretention to conversion

No Sunday for need
No Saturday for support Friday from fear

No...No more
Never again:
"We need their stamp, signature"

And in need
The husband's eye
"Is there any opportunity? "
