Preserving Carol Wilson

Raspberry and fig jam should do it:
keep her sweetly frozen in time
like a roadside cafe built
at the foot of a mountain.
Chunks of fruit and melted sugar
will stick her to the shelf of
a renovated church
converted into a six bedroom house
as memorable as the title of the book
next to her name on a thin spine.
