Ash Wednesday

Carolyn Mayer


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.
