The Power of the Glance
Now here she is with her purse
And her art and her dogs.
She flounces down the street filling
The space around her and
So much more.
She is what everyone wants.
I love her, by golly, I do. But she takes
No visible heed of me,
Even when she knows me so well.
I am like a big bag of cheap nothing to her.
It is an old story, and
I am left behind like
So many other fools.
If she passes by and doesn’t look
My way, I will know there is
Still no chance for me.
Now, here she is, strutting
In front of me without
So much as a glance. She has
Sealed my fate as surely as if
It were locked away with a key.
There she goes and here I sit.
She is a heartless shrew, by God.
Do I see something new?
Yes. She is turning ever so slightly,
And looking, right back to me.
I have hope.
Audio and Author Comment-
Greetings to all my readers!
Have you missed 'The Causerie'? People were beginning to ask whether that poet lady is alive or not! Yes, I am alive. I unexpectedly took the summer off. Without warning, the need for rest and renewal overtakes one on occasion, doesn't it. It did me. Nevertheless, I'm happy to be back. I will be posting 'The Causerie' a little less often, but you will be getting new poems, old favorites, offers of books to buy and the latest in the world of Earlene Grey. As always, let me know what you think! You can email direct at email@example.com
This week I am posting a new little ditty. See above. It is tells the same old story of unnoticed affection. Does anyone relate to this? How interesting the game of love can be!
Your poet, Susan Patterson
