WILLOW AND HAWTHORN

by Rachel Rose Teferet


In my mother's backyard
            a willow shudders by the river
                her limbs severed

I gather branches
            and weave a crown
                studded with hawthorn rubies

while the water beats my body
            swollen with winter
