For Mama on Easter Sunday

Mama, I whisper, is that you there,
bent at the door,
darkening the lamp,
waiting for the bridegroom?

Is that you there
with your alabaster comb
piling my hair into a high black nest,
building a home for swallows?

Is that you there
washing the floor
with a mop made of tears?
