St. Jane Frances de Chantal (patron of forgotten people & in-law problems)

the fire creeps up &

catches the hem of

everything I wear.

I made a skirt

out of photo negatives.

hold it up to the light

and see what you’ve

been missing.

they’ll melt

so quickly.

all those canoe trips,

sagging birthday cakes,

and all those bow-legged


to put out the flames,

I can walk into the lake

heart first.
