Sitting in the cemetery
Drawing headstones and burial monuments
She was overcome with sadness

A lump in her chest that arose, unexpectedly

The concrete angel knelt above her on a small stone
Limp wings behind slumped shoulders

Plaintive hands with open palms aimed skyward

Her drawings were pencil
Black and grey mostly
But on this occasion she added a single spot of blue
Under one eye

The title of the drawing she wrote later,
on the reverse side
