Why I prefer mysteries to non-fiction

I am so easily

by truth &
have yet to

fully recover
from learning

glass is not
a solid but

a slow liquid

ripples &
waves in

On our second date

You gave me a book
on Jenny Lind, “The
Swedish Nightingale”

turned corners, pictures
of PT Barnum n Tom
Thumb, pages soft n light

with the inscription, “The
Trill of a Lifetime,” below
your sketch of a bird.
