As Close As She Would Allow….

September 27, 2010

3 years and today
I brought you a paper flower

It was all that I had, and while living

You would have arranged it on your coffee table

To collect dust and, I would hope

Remind.

Torn to shreds at this point,

Mower blades and the reason for flat stones

I did better than I thought, holding it together

Until I got to the car.

He asked if we were close and I

Couldn’t say yes

Couldn’t say no, only

“As close as she would allow.”
