Mystery Mouse


She looks so minuscule:

Mystery mouse
Knelt in reflection
Beside her yawning box
Of providence

You--

.....The vivid feathers
.....In her ceremonial dance

..........The honeysuckle perfume
..........On her summer current

...............The glorious crescendo
...............To her life's symphony

You--

.....The gilded cloud
.....To her noontide shower

..........The lighthouse beam
..........Over her pebbled coast

...............The marble pearls
...............In her necklace of smiles

You--

.....The decision
.....She made with sentience

..........The fundamental root
..........That makes her love feel deducible

...............Her happiness
........................Her hope
..............................Her home...

What was it?

An errant moonbeam?
Some dewy leaves on pavement?
A capricious angel soaring across your horizon?

What anomaly waylaid your concentration?

Why did your motorbike

...................................S
......................................K
.........................................I
............................................D


Into that ditch?


She looks so minuscule:

Mystery mouse
Knelt in reflection
Beside her yawning box
Of providence

...................The pine box
...................That holds--

You
