Artist with Worried Sister

she stands up
among her broken people

counting time on fingers
bent with it

her plane was a bed
contrived of shadows

full of salt wound in sheeting
worn to shreds

like all ends of things
now orange energy lifts her

to other people's clanging yellow 

urgencies sweeping her forward

 away from the sister
who is always one step behind
