lady is heart hurt
no la la la song
no red lip bent to smile
no sweet voice making ya ya
no slender whisper

lady wanders maman’s house
lost  
kneels to pray
tell chapelet
slipping beads

thought of cigar smoke
patchouli
ail her

memories visit
her fille bed
dream of brown hand
soft mustache
kiss lip
she cries out
to the dark
jésus
dieu
aidez-moi
help me

look maman
lady steps back
opens arms
gone
ground I stand on
air I breathe

maman frets

papa pleads
come my doucette
sit under pecan tree
tell me your heart  
breathe doucette
just breathe

lady wanders
lost
yet never alone

sunshine day
river soothe singing
twig leg ibis
picking at bank
breeze blow bying her window
lady takes to her bed
makes cry
big big cry

I really like your charcoal man series, Lady.
So unique and full of emotion and mood.
