Tale: A poem

Shufan Zhang/File

you wanted me to make a story of you.

 

you sensed that if you played your cards right –

if you instilled the faintest sense of hope

and took it away overnight –

i would write you into immortality.

you sensed all that i had to give

and thought this meant eventual eternity for you,

that i would spin a yarn

about you.

 

but darling,

these fibers are dynamic.

 

i spun, cried a story

about, of you

 

but i will now weave together a poem

 

out
of you.
