Just Yesterday

Just yesterday
my love was
like a kid breaking in
the year's new clothes.

Just yesterday
I was a bell
joyfully coming and going
announcing mass.

Now I am
like the virgin bride whose lover
refused consummation,
like a sun finished burning
whose ash  
                  is scattered by the wind.
