Ash Wednesday

the finger

of black dust–

 

forgives the pleasure of

sex and chocolate

 

forgives the day’s

wine and leisure

 

forgives collections of

cashmere sweaters

 

and the garden of clay angels

with broken wings

nest lost fledglings

 

Ash Wednesday

 

penitent forehead

of dust.
