Feast of St. Mary (1955)

from The Death of Samuel Miller by The Chairman Dances



St. Mary’s feast day and red carnations. A smile, a glance, a tacit hope. A swollen breast and eyes lit up. My voice that cracked and quivered. A hand on mine, a hand to hold, to frame the scene and place it. A mind to learn with plans to make daughter’s bottle and warm blankets. A hollowed heart, a longed-for touch, a name that rang and caught me. On St. Mary’s feast day, I found you waiting. And we left that holy place as one.
