The Microphone (An extension)

15/11/2009

You are the strongest one
To lift this heavy device
In hands heavy with grief.
Poetry has made you strong;
For though there’s a swell in your throat
And pain from the light that shines,
You tell us a story, a story
With the clearness of watertight eyes.

For Louise Halvardsson
