About this Event
The house of the dead woman
flew half mast for two weeks;
shades all down and black,
the flowers drooping obediently,
and Jasmine the faithful domestic
would walk the slow drill of mourning,
burdened, her eyes carrying grief and loss
along the oak-lined avenue.
- From the poem “Good Help” in Wisteria: Twilight Poems from the Swamp Country
