A Woman in Full


she calls from the road: family drama,
a continuation of previous
emergent circumstance. she won’t be ruled
by it, though   —   it’s in her voice as well as
in her words, not brave so much as defiant;
happiness itself may be a tenuous
thing, but her grip remains sure, firm in its
resolve though she early came to the wisdom
that control is as chimerical in
nature as is a vacuum.          he sees her
strength as a beauty forged in brilliance, verse
baptized in experience guided by
keen intelligence, sharp and unbeguiled
through cultivating her humanity.
