“Griselda de Reptonville did not know what love was until she joined one of Mrs. Hatch’s famous house parties at Beams, and there met Leander.”

one more remembrance

one more remembrance
just now i wrote a word
i am older by a word
by two
by three
by a poem

older — what does it mean older

within the abstraction named history
i was given a narrow range
from here — to there

i am bulging

within the abstraction named economics
i was commanded to live

within the abstraction named time —
i wander
i get lost
and wander

in the Metropolitan Museum
in the Egyptian sculpture section
a stone smiles with womanly lips
