30 that would never repair. Our seeds swam away in them. Our shoes stuck at the bone. In ditches and gullies, the grass swam like cilia, and the water was not pure. No. It was full of us, flaked with rock and wood, televisions, mattresses, car hoods, mail. It went away. It all goes away. The leavings of our bodies left us, floated, were lost. Catherine Staples Fear of Heights After Andrew Wyeth's ``Widow's Walk'' A widow's walk will go to your head like the sight of a former boyfriend pulling up in a two-toned Alpha--sunglasses and a baseball cap, he patiently waits while you study his face. Recent history you can't know, but might intuit, beaten up some by previous inhabitants, still you remember. Twenty years or more, the patina's all glint and shiver. It's the wind from the sea makes you light-headed, inclined to break like a floe far to the north, present self sheared loose from youth. What you have in mind is nothing, walking around the porch to the back door, the half-filled lemonade pitcher spilling phlox. The latch unhitches to the drop of a thumb and summer rushes out with a long-held breath.
