Saskia Hamilton

Saskia Hamilton [Star Black]

from Saskia Hamilton's Divide These:

Year One

If the eyes move to the right: no.
If they stay in the center: yes.

The left is for listening because they sit
on the left side of the bed.

Only the eyes move. Someone
swabs her lips.

The first nurse is too cheerful.
The second does not know

how to speak to the speechless.
The third strokes her arm:

something settles down:
one lying, one sitting,

one in the doorway.
