Tatul Sonentz - ASHES

On the ninth day
of my birthday
she handed me
a small ashtray
shaped like a sandal
made of clay…

She neither kissed me
nor did she smile
as she walked away…

That clay sandal
sitting on my desk
next to dried roses
that once smelled
of blooming spring
is now full of butts
waiting to be dumped
like an old pair
of scruffy sandals…

TATUL SONENTZ
