Room with Two Windows

by Sarah V. Schweig

 

When he left, I was what was left. When two trees fell, I saw them falling.

The noise of the street quiets the mind now the trees and wind are gone.

 

Today I watch a man saw away the dead branch he’s standing on.

That’s the last of it, he shouts down. Not to me, but to someone.
