she was well acquainted

cloud gray clawed itself 
across desolate sky,
abandoned space
bright sunlight forbid,
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
the row feels in its texture bark
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
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
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
