downtownpoem #4

we need a sonnet song something
special to memorialize sachi our
splendid flower shop 7th & adams
run so graciously by yosh truly a
golden place its name her beloved
mother but filled with such demands
such caring about blooms about
persons peggy in back snipping stems
designing fragile beauty the proprietor
pencil in hair juggling orders maybe
a moment for chat or soup demi
sharing her quiet being for a while
it sustained lives now sachi’s sign
is down yosh is freed to write of
lives lived steadfastly of innocence
of prisons her book a tangled wreath
of weeds wounds winds lilies cranes
baby’s breath an overflowing sachi
of flowers a gift of fecundity for us all
