she was well acquainted

cloud gray clawed itself 
across desolate sky,
 
abandoned space
 
bright sunlight forbid,
above
 
auctioned off;
 
one little girl, pretty dress,
stood by
 
the Hedgerow, listened to the
Altdorf chatter,
 
but not like a street chatter
but with her only friend,
 
a small, lifeless dollie;
 
soon, a heavy Peculiar,
much like thick soup
 
then, she picks up Hedgerow
sharp clipper
 
gives it a Dwarfen handshake
with scabbed,
 
small, delicate hands
 
Hedgerow bush begins to sway,
this way
that way
 
like a sail on a steam tank,
 
maize to cut through
possibly
 
the row feels in its texture bark
momentary,
ceaseless
 
pain;
 
she, looking for a mother figure
who might cook,
who might sow
 
in an untilled garden
 
reap a responsible husband,
or just a father figure
 
she, follows the Morr’s man,
follows the Morr’s maidens
 
who sew pretty little dresses
on dollies,
 
she, be all but years
3 + 3,
 
then cellar kept
cellar starved,
 
small mice get caught in a 
secluded spider
 
web;
 
her, tears silenced
crying silenced
 
light through a slit window
shows a hand to
 
wipe them away,
 
much as in the one in Ruins
of Rainald throw,
 
she, once danced with a 
sister where sunshine
 
dripped through cutout
holes in
 
abandoned sky
 
smiles left them like passengers
departing abandoned
 
train stations,
 
now, she only talks to herself
now, only talks with a dollie
 
does the sign of the cross,
 
does tell truths to Verana
does hum the Grimm tales;
 
then, Candleheads with the 
black dog hunt,
 
is she found? wonder
 
priest along, condemns parents
to the Morr’s cradle
 
it’s quite permanent
mother swings
husband swings,
 
plus, her dollie…
 
she, years older,
train travel
 
perchances
 
with her sister
 
baggage carried with gaps
where they once hid,
 
but one caught, sent away to
Ruins of Rainald
 
now, baggage tossed under
wheel sound
 
now, dance together under
stars.
