Mythologies / Carol D’Souza

It’s sobering work, this
To stop short reminiscing
To sidestep sugar-coating
To stare the story stark in the face
To fold up the corner of the heart lent —
mellow music, mood lighting, kindness

No longer the ready
benefit of the doubt
Time to retire
the mythologies
that sustained a love

Carol D’Souza: tea-drinker, walker.
