1. THAT BLACKISH WOMAN

the woman in black shied
away
from petticoats—
from corsets—
from cotton chemises
that breathed once
then drowned in beaded sweat.

her husband inhaled the black dust
that arced,
painfully slow,
over his breast.
he looked like a grizzly—
hibernating for life—
in death.

the woman in black suffocated
beneath
petticoats,
corsets,
cotton chemises
that clenched her body
in its sweaty pleats.
