NOW I UNDERSTAND
(9/21/14)


sitting
across
a diner table
from a veritable
stranger
and watching
her wide eyed
opened mouth
reactions
to recollections
of what I consider
ordinary happenings
in my history
is quite
the revelation

answering
"what I need"
when she asks
what I want
from life
seems
a significant
revelation
for her

realizing
why she says
goodnight
outside
of her door
is simply
the resigned
result
