Saint Susi by Nicole Estelle

Saint Susi

she is a Spanish song

lost four years ago

newspaper dress

we thought the news was too much to keep up with back then

a Banana Republic Saint

the nights she would drive us to San Francisco

to buy us sourdough and watch us dance

a $7 rose

she is ocean

and she is English History

her voice,

deeper than all roses

have you ever felt a hug,

like warm waves taking you out?

the sun was pink the morning after

we stood at the end of the park to stare

the last time we saw her eyes
