Poet’s Corner


her realm
By Michael Oliveira

she sees the ghosts
of grey cats
from the corners
of her eyes;
her former
present and
future selves
on a stairwell
in the not so
distant past;
the trinity
she yearns for
one not yet born

I stand at
the curb as
her parade
goes by

Michael Oliveira has lived and worked on Martha’s Vineyard for decades. He currently lives in East Falmouth.
