Imponderables by Dianna Vagianos Armentrout



—for Jeanette or henry


Tuesday in homeopathy class

“imponderable” remedies


moonlight blue



I want to take

luna 200c

to feel the waves more,

come and go with my grandmother


Thursday I hear

that you are gone


all smiles, good soul

you took yourself away


transparent you

transparent me


       where did the veil go?


laugh at us

as we try to understand


mercy, moonlight, madness


my heart, my heart, my heart


my feet wet in all this rain
