The Perfect Match

The perfect match
keeps to a book
as her sisters, one by one,
leave the house,

a scent of ash,
pulses of shadows
unraveled on the roof.

The red-head sleeps
until a cough of thunder,
a search for candles

and a storm, who paints
the porch and steps
into the living room

to invite her out
to dance, hesitant
to blow a single
