Leland Cemetery, Canton Township, Michigan

The iron latch creaks as I lift it,
swing the gate open, then shut the world
behind me. Four-story-high branches
of maple and beech sway above.
Birds are quiet under the heaviness
of a summer afternoon.
I know the way. Footstep
by footstep, toward
the all but unreadable
markers of my great-to-the fourth
grandparents, I walk slowly
toward my life.

Sometimes in winter

having arrived home
late at night

instead of coming into
the warmth

I stand looking up
at the clear sky jingling

all that change in its pocket
into which I have slipped

my hand taking nothing



Jennifer Burd, Ypsilanti, Michigan
