Gogyohka 5.9.09, 5.10, 5.11

She waters plants and piles
books, loves her children,
collects and keeps things alive--
smiles looking away:
My dad's new lady.

At one house, the cupboard
is full of tea!
All sealed in glass bottles.
In the other, only a few
bags sit in a basket--her favorites.

To drive through St. Louis
passing over muddy water
while passing under
the shiny arch
is to break the sky's egg open.
