Mrs May, by Kathy Gee

I am not a silent poet

Her voice hits my ear
like falling on a bruise:
an instant’s recognition
followed by a throb,
an agony of disbelief.

It’s time to switch
to active, to transmit
the cries of women,
children without gardens,
men asleep in doorways.

Time to state
the limits reached,
to say thus far, no further
