Transposition 3872 2592 Mark Mayes

your peaceful face
in the back of the car
driving home from an airport
we collected you

your peaceful voice
temporarily changed
to quiet measures

conflictless girl
easily holding
birth wisdom

wanted always you to be this
what lay beneath
wanted all your life
be this
candle in the head
breath on soft flame

lights change
we turn into a road
becoming a river
