Believing Their Shadows is a lovely book of poems by my friend Anne Colwell. Published by Word Press in 2010.
From “Casida of the Lover Looking Beyond New Jersey”
I live in a city whose name
you never imagined.
I walk between the shadow of dogwood
and the shadow of elm,
eight years from the olive grove
where I held your wrist,
crying, fingers pleading with
the secret skin
behind your elbow.
