Early Afternoon Sorrows

by Maxwell Baumbach

1 PM

last night
a mere mental mirage
at this moment

the necklace on the bedpost

comes all the way around 
   the way she never will
is the color of love
   a word she does not know
is empty in the middle
   the gap she leaves

she scoops it into her hand
smiles her indifference
