Poem for All Souls’ Day

The title poem of Rhea Tregebov’s new book on this dark day…

All Souls’ Day

 

 

Some moon – full, and fall.

So close it grazes the houses.

The clocks gone back now – six

and it’s near dark. That moon

bright, though, and this city. Cars,

their lights, wash by on pavement

made for them. This sidewalk,

its dates marked in concrete

(1977, 1992), made for me.

By someone. That someone

a soul now perhaps, body

done, in earth. Winter soon.
