The Room

A Woman in an Interior, Strandgade 30 by Vilhelm Hammershøi

Light opens the doors,
Her loss has blocked time.
Her hands rest on
The heavy material of her dress.
There is no breath but her own.
It is a long time before death.
Outside a bird sings
Through the paralysis.

She is unaware
That she is not alone.
