Easter (American Sentences)

March–skirt puffs up
like blossoms
blown back–Easter–
the net on
best hats.

April–sun crossed the nave–Easter–
waves of short white gloves almost
too warm.

Old lady’s
even the memory
of Death’s held hand

Its palm warm
as blossom, soft as
worn gloves, lets go for today
all stones.
