A Lasting Farwell

I knew a girl with a clutching embrace,

Silky hands and demons. She’d had an

Endowment, her mother’s love. She’d had

The clap and serum hepatitis at fourteen.

She had a beautiful smile and a pistol in

Her purse. I flew to her flames, then drown

In the desperation of her numbered days.

I really like your succinct pieces with precise ambiguity. I happen to remember our discussion about this, which makes the piece all the more meaningful.
As always, sophisticated and sentimental.

Thank you again, DK. I've learned a great deal from you.
You might be interested in finding out I count musical measures instead poetic feet. I shoot for rhythm and try to avoid rhyme. Isn't that an odd way to work?
