she remembers

she remembers
mama’s antique glass,
displays of blues fading into reds,
beside the large window looking into
the backyard—her red dress
blowing back and forth
to the big band swing music
of hot bodies,
all hanging precariously
on faded rope clothesline
strung across
jeweled green grass,
tied around
red lipstick cherry trees.
