A tiny house by the highway
 is alive in the darkness with
 a light on in the window,
 its heart beating only for one,
 a sixty-eight-year-old woman
 without even a pet for a com-
 panion, only the nightly news
 on the radio and canned foods
 in her cupboards to live on.
 Just last week someone sent
 her a belated sympathy card
 when her husband had died
 two months ago, enclosing
 pressed flowers: hawthorns,
 pieces of sunflowers. Her
 tissue-paper heart now
 crinkled at the edges, her
 breath like autumn frost
 a chill after moonrise on
 September evenings. In her
 home, quiet as the fog, she
 looks for him everywhere--
 in her wallet, in greeting
 cards with smiling faces.
 She waits for azaleas to
 bloom in the winter.
