Jesse Crockett

Light Trauma

Our mother
doing the crossword
sees on the wall
a smudge

from the kitchen for a dishcloth
returns, kneels to scrub

perplexed, lifts her hand
the smudge gone

stands, reappears, shadow
from the window flower vase

Jesse Crockett lives in suburban Kansas City and works for listenlight.
