What she’ll show you

Still
The night’s seam floats as a half captured thing will delay its submersion

Sufficient enough that emotion

Like tortoise shell

Will wink against moon light

Trailing what if’s like a woman’s question

Held against her soft cheek

Tight as boiled sugar

And what she’ll never show you

Is everything

The underside of a world richer

Than if you toiled all your years

To reproduce that shine

  1. I too especially love that line “Tight as boiled sugar…” Your unique, unexpected images always amaze me.
    Hope you’re doing better….?
    Thinking of you (I was just looking at your book again today…) πŸ’•πŸ’ž

  2. The language and wordplay here are clever and creative, they match up with the content throughout the poem and with the photo used too:

    “Trailing what if’s like a woman’s question
