Elizabeth Romero: On the Corner


(by some miracle)

We could be both dead and alive

Rise from the blood and ashes

Gauzy like movie ghosts

We could stand on the corner

And talk to our friends

Would we shift in the wind

Stroke our insubstantial chins


Even then


Even then

Or would we untangle

The twisted skeins of our ignorance

Lay bare our hearts
