Thereâ€™s a mauve place youâ€™ve forgotten,
where you mothered dogs for a living,
washed the teeth of little boys, and
dreamed about embroidery and
trustâ€”and ointment, and the people
you wanted to write aboutâ€”and coasts
where doctors hung around at dusk,
starving for the good of us all, us all.
