    She Lived
    by Lucille Clifton (1936-2010)

    after he died
    what really happened is
    she watched the days
    bundle into thousands,
    watched every act become
    the history of others,
    every bed more
    narrow,
    but even as the eyes of lovers
    strained toward the milky young
    she walked away
    from the hole in the ground
    deciding to live. and she lived.
