Liaison

she loves, she
says,
to hear me
sing

 

an end-life
 surprise 
 from a 
 song-less
              child

 

so now
there are
evenings,
long, dark
evenings,
when i sit
down the dusty
hallway and
sing

 

for her
         just
for her

 

a private concert
neither applauded
nor acknowledged

 

evenings,
when a voice
still new to her
                    drifts
down the darkened
hallway to
              mix
with Memory
(suppers cooking)
(Tiparellos burning)
(children crying)

 

beyond
          just
beyond

 

the Interlude-
laced blind of
night,
lashing us with
a softer
          chain
