MEMORIAL DAY (MOTHER’S BIRTHDAY) /
WHO NEEDS THIS HEART

Who needs this heart
who will share in the world upon my shoulders
who needs this heart
it’s wild–

Who sees this heart
in the crumple and changing of September
who sees this heart
and smiles–

Who hears this heart
who hears this heart–
in the storm of a house she once mentioned–

Who holds this heart
in the presence of a darkness she must fathom
who holds this heart
who holds this heart
and is afraid–

original version of “Who Needs This Heart” on when I left loss (1999)
