another lonely day


she looked toward the window..
her eyes brimming with tears..
it was getting dark..outside..
..she rose unsteadily..and
walked to the window..
peering down at the street below..
then sighed...and
put away the chairs..
...and the empty pushkas
and put out the candle..
smoothed out her rendered clothes..
and shut the light..
......the silence welcoming
the darkness
.....another day of shiva
and no one
..to console her
