  • The water woman

    The woman's hanging washing on a line.
    Somewhere a child. A dog runs
    through a narrow space.

    The woman hefts
    a sheet from a damp basket.
    Where's the child? The dog runs.
    Its tongue lolls.

    The woman is seen
    through a narrow space.
    The white sheets draped on the*line*
    hide the child. The dog runs,*
    getting bigger, closer.*
    It wags its tail.*

    Where will I find you, water woman?*
    In the dripping of a tap?*
    The weave of a wash-cloth?*
    The gutter? The cloud?*

    The child counts*
    its fingers and toes. The dog runs.*
    A sheet dries in the wind.
