PHOTOGRAPH

I imagine you sitting there at the table 

Behind you. It is the table i look at. You are 

Hidden in the foreground, in the shadows 

Framing the dining room like the pillar beside 

You. I imagine you sitting at the table, growing 

Not old – the shadows wash away the lines 

That must be there. Tulips, roses, something 

Flowery in front of you. I imagine you sitting 

There at the table for years. Did you paint 

The room, choose the colours. What is it like 

To be a mother? I turn the light up on my desk

A face can be like a word repeated over 

And over until it loses all meaning. Are you 

About to laugh? Even the ceiling makes me lonely

With the light streaming onto it through the window
