                                              true to life

                      two days before she died
                      deep in the pain that would
                                swallow her unconscious
                      she said she felt sorry
                                for Dad

                      who had left to find
                                another life
                      away from the one he had

                                she left implicit
                      that he would never find one
                                always wondering
                                always wandering

                                but she
                      had stayed with the rubble
                      the lino and the clumps of grass
                                true to her sons
                                true to her mother
                                true to her pain
