Some Days Are Longer Than Most Years

 
She Ransacked through the rubble
strewn, rusted, rancid in its glory

To weave remorse with autumn
leaves on her braille skin, but

The Rattan threads snaked, stalking
frayed memories grazing at her feet

To the fading light of a Rebel sun
restitutionary in its golden tears.

Hues of Redemption cascaded from
her cheeks to a familiar Rhapsody

A song, more ancient than time
Ripened on disfigured vines

Dripping Rivulets of fermented wine
on the Rosary chaining her wrists.

Waiting, weighted with a Rucksack
brimming with sins and dry Rye bread

as the dead fish floated downstream.
