lyrics

If, in this life, I could see them again,
I would trace a fingertip
around their light-holding mouths:
the painted mason jar that sat, squat,
in ascending height,
on a ledge in my grandmother's house

Necks glazed with birds-of-paradise,
they choked on paw-paw spears,
prunes, shields of pear, and nectarines
with their claws curled in,
while the muscat grapes
wizened away in a Wedgewood cup.

The first Wednesday of December
her backyard mangoes boiled
to chutney like clockwork. It sputtered
and set in infantry rows of jam-pots
for the widows on Ladies' Day,
each lid fringed with a tartan skirt -

Of all the things I miss on earth,
what I miss the most is the perfume
of that windowsill -
jar by jar cooling under a tropic moon,
those five mouths
fragrant with the death of fruit.
