women for whom i should not be writing poems: vii

by Brynn Dizack

you are like a thing that
does not exist.
on the grayest day, where
the ocean meets the sky,,
is where you are.

i have seen pictures of you
that i am not supposed to see.
someone else's story of you:
the colors you were, and
the way your body was shaped in her eyes, in her
hands.

but,
this should not surprise you.
you have made yourself a riddle, and i am
hungry for clues.

I'd be honored to be one of these women.

how a stranger, or one strangely familiar rests in many of my own thoughts - I do well not to write them out into poetry, but these words make me wish to do so; to explore the riddle, feed the fire of my hunger for a clue or three.
