Remains

By Shailja Sharma

Remains

The cottage remains
The myth of love still lives
in the heap of straw
and amongst the beads of a
broken necklace
The footsteps
cutting through
woods
are deep and solid
despite the
rain through the
years
Life is walking
on them
rather slowly
due to a tangled
scarf
