The Accident

She hasn't spoken to her mother
since the accident: an immeasurable time,
an absence of slamming doors, raised voices.

And instead:
deafening silence.
She finding false refuge in implicit blame
And harbours her guilt in distant lands.

Yesterday, she wrote a letter to her mother.
Another to add to the pile of the unsent,

the unreceived.

A terrifying monument to the unspoken,
A Miss Rosa Coldfield, cloistered in a dark room
for forty-three sultry summers and clinging
to a self-pity that has become her very life-blood.

Years later;
her daughter will find these words in a bottom drawer–
signed, sealed and undelivered.
And she will liberate them.


–Simon Fraser
