She sifts through his poems

studying every nuance

examining every subtext

measuring every sentence

considering every meaning

reviewing every word.


She digs ever deeper

for a fragment

of her.

    I can’t help but hope she finds one, although I’m sure she luxuriates in the process of her meticulous looking.

    This is so much my ideal cup of tea. ❤
