Issue 2: S.K. McGillis

tending the past

your words fading a fragrance
a prayer pigments in primrose

the first death is most difficult
gardenias grow over memories

we tended your garden in grief
gained materials to paint you

the name of your mother
the smell of your clothes

what you said was white
we found a mixture of everything

your name inside of ours
we who have your eyes, your voice

--S.K. McGillis
