BRIEF CANDLE

Stark in profile
on the dank blue line
train car, 

the hunched 
woman—a tormented 
figure of evening,

joylessly
nagging a huge mutant 
nectarine 

to its terrible 
ochre 
pit and shreds—

though silent
and weary
with the dribbling 

juice, nevertheless 
bids you: 
call 

and 
check
on mom.
