Crossbows vs crosswords.

so i sit waiting for an explanation that never comes

here in this coffee shop a whole life undone

my paper on the table, all these words

but still no more truth to this story

Than a hat landing on its stand

windows steaming up with

Cross stitched hearts ,bows and arrows

crosswords, crossiants

and a bird in her cage

looking longly at an outside world

If only the boat still sailed.
