A Glass Full of Swans

The woman
waded through

the moonlit fields

like a horse –
deliberately.

Her mouth was
a pale line

in the darkness,

like someone
searching

for a love
lost

in death.
Her bracelets clinked

like hooves
to cobble.

I watched her move
over the field

like someone
sleepwalking

into dawn.
