Now suddenly she can hardly stand
she is in her city again and the wind
is sharp. She is inside a house,
somehow she lives here now.
Now she is wondering how she is
to find the numbers people go by,
she is wondering which way to walk.
Now she can hardly stand suddenly
the house seems easier than the city.
She is wondering where she will eat,
in which room to put her desk,
she is wondering how to sit.
Despite the pink stems of rhubarb
in the garden and the flowers
on the walls she can hardly stand.
She is wondering how to get
to the city from the house.
